Longer Lives and Better Health Are in Our Nurses’ Hands

UB’s School of Nursing is a leader in nursing research and education. Our programs are nationally ranked. Our faculty are experts in their fields. Our students are smart, ambitious, passionate, superbly educated. And we’re deeply engaged with our community, both locally and globally. Now we’re aiming even higher, seeking an infusion of philanthropy for strategic investments in research, technology, and faculty and student support.

We are seeking a $6 million investment in front-line health care.

Our Priorities

Here Is How We Produce the Next Generation of Nursing Leaders

We serve our students in countless ways, including stellar classroom education, strong clinical experiences and unique research opportunities. To expand such transformative experiences, we’re seeking additional funding for more student support, more faculty to teach our students, more research and more service-learning opportunities worldwide. Philanthropic investments will expand scholarships for graduate and undergraduate students—a critical part of solving the nursing shortage—and drive enhancements to our state-of-the-art Simulation Center.

Here Is How We Turn Health and Wellness Research Into Real-World Solutions

Overcoming addiction. Improving sleep quality. Enhancing quality of life for those battling cancer. Promoting healthy lifestyles. These are among the greatest health challenges facing our nation—and UB nurse-scientists are at the forefront. Now we’re raising additional funds to expand and leverage our research programs. With philanthropic support, we’ll endow chairs, allowing us to recruit nationally renowned faculty whose research puts them—and UB—on the leading edge of nursing science and practice.
