The University at Buffalo is recognized as a premier public research university. We support UB’s leadership, faculty, students and staff by providing the services and resources UB needs to achieve its goals. Here are just a few of the ways we continue to make a positive impact on the university.

Providing the ‘Gold Standard’ Nationwide

The FIM® instrument is widely regarded as the “gold standard” for measuring a patient’s functional status through the continuum of care.

The UB Foundation manages scholarship funds for the benefit of UB, enabling students to take advantage of unique opportunities and experiences.

Sparking Innovation

The Henry A. Panasci Jr. Technology Entrepreneurship Competition is funded with an endowment that is managed by the UB Foundation.

The UB Foundation provides support to the Distinguished Speakers Series, which brings speakers of national and international renown to campus several times a year.

Supporting UB’s Historic Move Downtown

Relocating UB’s new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, which will help attract leading physicians, researchers and medical students, would not have been possible without our help.

Attracting the Best

Endowed chairs bring some of the world’s leading scholars to UB, and are made possible in large part by the gift stewardship services that we provide.

Strengthening UB’s Ability to Share World-Class Collections

A home for UB’s permanent art collections–and the lead facility for UB’s museum studies program–the Anderson Gallery is owned by the UB Foundation.

Where Discovery Works

Providing critical support to the UB and Buffalo Niagara research communities, the UB Technology Incubator is a groundbreaking facility that we are proud to own and help manage.

Supporting Life-Saving Research

The Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences can attract and retain leading researchers, in part because of the gift stewardship services offered through the UB Foundation.

Creating New Compositions

An internationally recognized composer thrives at UB, thanks in part to our key role in supporting an endowed chair.

Enhancing Education, Research and Clinical Care

By helping to support endowed chairs, we play a role in attracting some of the world’s top researchers and leaders to UB–including Anne B. Curtis, MD.
