To enhance UB’s impact on our students, our knowledge-generation, and our world by cultivating the connections and partnerships through engagement and philanthropy that will help the university achieve its goals.
A world where a UB education is within reach of any student who desires it; a world in which UB is ranked in the Top 25 of public universities nationwide, and a world in which UB Advancement is universally recognized as a thought leader and best in class advancement organization.
University Advancement is committed to creating a culture where all people are safe, heard and valued. Here, we grow relationships and find innovative ways to engage with all members of the greater UB community. We aspire to be an organization that attracts and retains a diverse staff that welcomes and engages all our alumni and friends. The future of our work must be inclusive. We are dedicated to cultivating a culture of trust and collaboration. A team that embraces these values will be better positioned to recognize and seize opportunities that maximize our success in all that we do.
