From the Buffalo State Council

The Buffalo State Council stands committed to the mission and direction of SUNY Buffalo State as documented in the 2022–2026 Strategic Plan. Buffalo State holds a prominent place within the higher education ecosystem, in Western New York, and across SUNY. As the only urban-engaged campus in the State University of New York system, Buffalo State not only provides an outstanding and affordable education on the bachelor’s and master’s levels but is also intricately connected to the city of Buffalo. You will find Buffalo State engaged in and supportive of every aspect within the city. Led by outstanding faculty members, students connect their major and minor studies to the issues and concerns of the Queen City. This allows students to provide value to important questions while also forging direct ties to the courses and curricula they are studying, preparing them for future leadership roles.

The pillars described in the Strategic Plan also recognize the current and growing diversity of our student body and the need to keep equity and inclusion always at the center of the educational experience. A part of this work will include further diversifying the faculty and staff and providing professional development to address the current and future needs of our students and all constituents.

The current strategic plan frames a clear sense of who we are and how we can deepen our commitment to the education of diverse students in ways that engage them inside and outside the classroom. The Council looks forward to the continued success of Buffalo State as guided by the new Strategic Plan. The world is changing every day, and we applaud the many ways that Buffalo State continues to evolve to meet the current challenges and to collaboratively thrive in ways that advance the educational goals of the campus.
