We need your support.

Students come to UB from every economic background, but leave as equals in opportunity. That’s the promise—the great work—of the public university. And you can play a crucial part in it.

The best public universities benefit from strong private philanthropy. Public universities are the people’s investment in top-quality education. Individual investors make public universities great by building on the platform of public support. UB’s College of Arts and Sciences strives to ensure a high-quality education is available to every student, and your support assures that opportunity. Together, public and private support offers our students the best chance to succeed.
