For Students

We attract and are energized by creative problem solvers who are eager to learn from peers, faculty and partners across disciplines and geographies.


Sign up to receive information about global health events at UB as well as opportunities to engage in global health research and education with our partners in Buffalo and around the world.

The University at Buffalo is committed to developing degree programs and course offerings that will give students the skills to meet the needs of populations around the world. We are reimagining current educational offerings and creating others that will launch soon!

We invite guests from across the University and around the world to share their innovative research and practices which improve health and wellbeing for populations. Join us at one of our events.

Investigate your interest in global health and identify research, partnership, and educational opportunities in Buffalo and around the world.
Smallholder farms provide at least 50% of the agricultural output for domestic consumption in most low- and middle-income countries. Smaller than two acres in size, smallholder farms account for about 70 percent of all farms. Yet, the 500+ million households that run these farms withstand the worst food insecurity, especially in the Global South. Limited access to capital, markets, land, technology, and training, as well as political stressors, gender inequities, and, more recently, climate change, amplify the vulnerability of smallholder farm families.
The Community for Global Health Equity aims to provide opportunities for students from across the University to travel and contribute to global health research and knowledge. International field work awards can cover up to $2,500 or the cost of travel and per-diem.
