Leadership

The UB PACS Leadership team is guiding implementation efforts at UB and setting the foundation for a SUNY wide implementation of the Click Portal.

The leadership team is comprised of Vice President for Research and Economic Development staff who have several years of experience in research administration and were selected based on the different Click Portal modules being implemented. Combining faculty input with many years of experience, the UB Click Leadership team has worked together to implement active Click modules and continue to work together to successfully complete the Click implementation.
