UB's Strategic Strengths: Advancing Research

Computing and Information Technology (CIT), through the Center for Computational Research (CCR), is a key player and significant contributor to UB 2020, the university's strategic plan, which has identified cross-disciplinary areas of strength indigenous to UB. 

Each strength serves as an infrastructure for pulling together researchers from across the university to work cooperatively in pursuit of solutions to wide-ranging problems through a non-traditional collaborative approach. Read more about all the cross-disciplinary areas of strength.
