Our hearts are with the 10 people who lost their lives today, along with their grieving families, all those who were injured, and all those who were traumatized by the mass shooting that occurred this afternoon in a Tops Supermarket in the City of Buffalo.
As a university community committed to fostering a safe, welcoming environment for all students, employees, alumni and visitors, our shared values of inclusion and mutual respect are never understood to be conditional, or situational.
It is with great pleasure that I offer you my very best wishes at the start of UB’s fall 2021 semester! This is truly a happy day for UB, as we celebrate the return of our university community to campus.
As we celebrate our university’s 175th anniversary, I am delighted to announce that we will be inviting our 2020 graduates back to campus for an in-person commencement ceremony Oct. 1, during Homecoming Weekend.
