$1.625 Million in Federal Funding for Buffalo’s West Side
Congressman Brian Higgins, ’85, announced the award of two Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grants to Buffalo State to prevent drug and alcohol use among youth on Buffalo’s West Side.
Our engaged faculty, dedicated to student learning, prepare students to positively contribute to their local and global communities.
More than half our alumni live and work in Western New York, increasing the economic value of our region's labor force.
Social commitment has been embedded in our campus culture for more than a century.
We’re proud to partner with local arts organizations in celebrating creativity.
