UB Alumni Association

Every graduate of UB* is a member of the UB Alumni Association, our alumni-powered global network. The association promotes connections among UB alumni and helps link alumni to the university and current students.

Together, we help UB take its place among America’s great public universities. The UB Alumni Association, a volunteer-led international organization, fosters UB pride, spirit and traditions. Professionals in the Alumni Engagement office staff our services and programs.

*UB Alumni Association membership also includes School of Management Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership CORE graduates, former medical residents, fellows, postdoctoral associates and select program certificate holders.
