Alumni & Friends of UB Philosophy

We want to hear from you.

We look forward to keeping in touch with you. Please send your news to us, including photos, if you would like some posted.

As always, we shall send links to our semi-annual Noûsletter to both our graduate and undergraduate alums. Copies of the Noûsletter are available on the website, and we shall continue to send hard copies to those who wish to receive them. See the Noûsletter archive to access every edition since 1990.

Contact us to learn more about how you can support our department, or, contribute directly through the secure site of the UB Foundation.

Department Events


Alumni and friends are welcome to participate in the events of the Philosophy Department, as we host colloquia, conferences, and lecture series. Please consult our Events page to check on current activities of the Department.

We are grateful for the support from our alums and firends

While the award, prize and scholarship funds for students have an endowed principal, contributing to them is important in order for the generated income to keep pace with inflation, and in order to gradually increase the amounts awarded for the same reason.

The one fund that has no endowment is the Philosophy Department Resource Fund. The amounts that are used from this account must be continually replenished by faculty, alumni and friends. Keeping the account funded is extremely important to the professional functioning of the department.

We are grateful for support from our alums and friends.

Your Donations

Support from alumni is vital for continued growth of opportunities within the Philosophy Department. All donations, whether large or small, are much appreciated. For profiles of some of our donors and information about what their endowments have made possible, please consult the following links.
