The Distinguished Visiting Scholars program in the College of Arts and Sciences brings a cohort of highly accomplished scholars and artists whose work elucidates social inequality and advances social justice to the university and Buffalo community. The year-long program engages the entire UB community, providing opportunities for new scholarly, artistic, curricular and pedagogical collaborations and access to scholars’ work through public presentations, performances, exhibitions, guest lectures, workshops and informal social gatherings.

Diversity refers to the range of human differences including race, ethnicity, sex, nationality, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, religion, socio-economic status, veteran status, and—within educational settings—international, first-generation, transfer and returning student status.
