From the Desk of the Vice President

Wishing You a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2022.

Giving is as Easy as 123


Good Afternoon Division of Student Life Colleagues,
I hope this message finds everyone well as we gear up for the home stretch of the academic year.
Since my arrival to the University at Buffalo, I'm always inspired by the students we serve and the community that we are a part of. As I talk about UB with individuals outside of our campus community, it is often difficult to describe the great feeling that comes with working at an institution you truly believe in.
To that end, I am asking for your support on UB Giving Day scheduled for April 19. This day provides a unique opportunity to show our commitment to the institution and to Student Life.

We have lofty goals planned for 2023. Last year, we had 61 donors out of 336 total staff members participate, for an 18% giving rate in Student Life. In coordination with UB Giving Day, we are kicking off a new division-wide campaign entitled 123 in 2023. Our goal is to get 123 staff members from our division to donate at any amount. To meet this year's campaign goal, a special donation link and website will launch the week of April 17. Stay tuned.
Your participation not only benefits our students, but will put us in the running for many challenge gifts that are at play during this event. To demonstrate my commitment to the effort, I will be donating up to $2,500 depending on the number of gifts that are made to Student Life by our staff, as well as the many loyal donors who support us throughout the year.
Thank you for all that you do for UB and our students, and I look forward to continued great success during UB Giving Day and beyond.
