The UB community is composed of enthusiastic, lifelong learners—people who value diversity, are committed to the pursuit of research and education and find motivation in being surrounded by achievement.
Our faculty have been recognized as the best teachers and top innovators in the world, winning such prestigious awards as the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, the National Medal of Science, the National Medal of Technology, the MacArthur Foundation “genius award” and the Guggenheim Fellowship, among others.
UB students have benefited from the expertise and passion of two U.S. astronauts; one of the country’s top geneticists; a Nobel Prize-winning chemist; the “Father of Chinese Physics,” a Tony Award-nominated stage and screen actor; one of America’s legendary jazz musicians; and the CEOs of a major cable television network and one of Hollywood’s most successful film companies.
UB staff thrive in positions from administration to athletics, communications to child development, finance to food services. They apply their talents to improve both the university and the larger world, exploring a wealth of opportunities for job and career growth.
As lifelong learners, staff members are driven by curiosity and ambition to continue to educate themselves—and UB thoroughly supports their efforts. From job skills training to developmental programs, the university helps its people realize their full potential.
Our students are eager to learn and get involved on campus, and they go on to do amazing things. Whether they are conducting climate research in Greenland, performing street theater in Prague or teaching English to refugees, UB students are engaged citizens whose collaborative learning experiences resonate far beyond the classroom.
