Fostering Innovation

Relentlessly Pursuing Excellence

At UB, we strive every day to go further, and make our extraordinary mark on the world. From our humble beginnings, to our continued rise as one of the top public research universities in the United States, we have spent nearly 175 years focused on what comes next. Our unrelenting commitment to innovation is one of our most deeply embedded values.

Here Is How We Prepare For An Uncertain Future

In today’s world, innovation is a necessity. Our responsibility for educating the next generation means that we must prepare students for nearly endless possibilities—a concept that often stretches the imagination to its furthest limits, and reinforces the need for innovation as a foundation.

At UB, we have decades of experience in turning innovation into impact. Here, we bring together the immense talents and strengths of our students and faculty across hundreds of disciplines. And we achieve powerful results through dedicated resources such as Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars, and a community-wide Innovation Hub for local entrepreneurs. Now, with your support, we will further embrace innovation in our ongoing mission to transform society, our university and our students.
