About Us


Serving Greater Buffalo and its regional community since 1973, the University at Buffalo Educational Opportunity Center (UBEOC) has been one of the premier adult educational entities in the State University system. Under the auspices of the University Center for Academic and Workforce Development, UBEOC administers quality workforce development, academic training and college preparatory programs to meet the needs of disadvantaged students. The Center strives to equip students with industry-recognized skills that enhance their employability and pathway preparation programming leading to college entry and degree attainment.

We believe in producing lifelong learners who are empowered to believe in their lifelong success. We believe that our students entrust us with providing them with an educational environment that fosters personal growth, intellectual achievement, economic independence and self-sufficiency. In the decades since our inception, UBEOC has seen thousands of students successfully complete our programs. We ultimately believe in the limitless potential of every student that we are honored to serve.
