Security in place at commencement ceremonies

Published May 17, 2022

President Satish K. Tripathi issued a statement regarding security for end-of-the-year events.

Dear members of the UB community,

As we approach the end of the academic year and celebrate our graduates’ many accomplishments at UB’s recognition ceremonies and commencements, I want to ensure that our graduates, their families and friends, and our faculty and staff feel safe enjoying these momentous occasions.

As with any large-scale event, UB has put in place security checkpoints for all those attending our recognition ceremonies and commencements. We ask that our graduates and everyone participating in commencement anticipate that gaining entrance into the event venue may take an extra few minutes.

I look forward to celebrating the events leading up to and including commencement weekend with our graduates and their guests.

President Satish K. Tripathi
