The university has finalized plans to conduct 17 in-person commencement ceremonies and four recognition and certificate events between April 30 and May 16, with limited numbers of guests in attendance based on capacity restrictions.
With plans for an on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinic delayed, students are strongly encouraged to obtain vaccinations at various sites off campus, such as those run by New York State and Erie County. Pharmacies and health care providers are also an option. The UB website WNY Vaccine Hound can help locate available appointments. Vaccine availability has been increasing, and more than 2,600 UB students now report being fully vaccinated.
