The advance of the University at Buffalo has always been propelled by a striving for something seemingly beyond
its reach.

From its origins as a frontier medical school, to its emergence of a strong regional private university in the early 20th century, to its transformation as a distinguished public research university, UB has always moved forward by aiming high. With implementation of Building UB, the university will take the next giant step in its journey to joining the ranks of the nation’s greatest public research universities.
