Buffalo Public Schools STEM Experience is an expansion on BPS STEM Week which occurred in April 2014. SUNY Trustee Eunice Lewin initiated the idea in order to improve the STEM education pipeline between the WNY region’s SUNY schools and Buffalo Public Schools. It also was designed to bring increased awareness of the need for education in STEM fields. In 2014, the program expanded to be more school-year-round. It also includes a speakers bureau as well as a reading component with the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System joining the effort. STEM Week 2015 took place March 14-20, 2015, beginning with the ISEP (Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Partnership) program’s Science Summit. It included school-based activities and two large events for a few hundred (each event) students from BPS elementary and high schools. Additional locations: Buffalo Public Schools; Buffalo Museum of Science; Roswell Park Cancer Institute Auditorium; Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System

Coordinated by the Office of Community Relations, UB’s Universitywide Adopt-a-Family helps make the holidays a little warmer and brighter for a number of local families in need. The Office of Community Relations collaborates with local nonprofits to identify needy families; those families are matched with participating UB departments to provide items from their wish lists. Since 2008, the program continues to grow, averaging over 20 participating departments and matched families each year. Additional location: Downtown Campus
