institutes that focus on collaborative, multidisciplinary work
in fields ranging from architecture and emerging media to homeland
security and women’s health.
UB is the premier public research university in the Northeastern
United States and the largest and most comprehensive campus in the
64-campus SUNY system. We’re an established leader and are
consistently recognized by top university guides and publications
for our excellent value and high-quality academics.
Our region is characterized by a neighborly way of life, an
unpretentious nature and spirited loyalty among residents. Those
only familiar with the area’s snowy stereotype are
immediately captivated by the region’s beauty, heritage,
temperate climate and welcome feeling.

state and 150 countries around the world. Among our celebrated
graduates are NASA’s lead astronaut for medical issues;
a former president of the American Medical Association; the
former minister of education in the People’s Republic of
China; the CEOs of J. Crew and A&E Television Network; and the
Washington Post’s Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial
