“See it Through Buffalo”
“See It Through Buffalo” documents the complex relationship between a school and its city. The documentary short reveals the urban landscapes and histories of Buffalo and the school's work within them. It was produced by the School of Architecture and Planning in collaboration with Paget Films and debuted internationally at the Time Space Existence exhibition at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.

“Inclusive Leadership: Bringing Us Together in a Divisive Age"
An ever-increasing set of complex challenges and our society’s increasing levels of divisiveness call for an urgent new type of leadership. This presentation introduced the concept of inclusive leadership and the novel approaches the School of Management is taking to develop the inclusive leaders of tomorrow.

Here's How You Can Be Boldly Buffalo

At the University at Buffalo, being bold means discovering better medicines, inventing faster computers and smarter materials, inspiring world-class performances, and solving society’s most complex challenges.

It means turning hard-working students into thoughtful, global leaders—year after year—guided at each step by award-winning faculty.

And it means helping millions of citizens around the world improve their environment, their health, their prosperity and their community, as we continue to make an immeasurable impact on the world.

Your investment in UB will make a difference, whether you support a scholarship for one UB student, endow a professor who will inspire thousands, or fund a cancer cure that saves the lives of millions. This is our bold promise to you.
