City Voices, City Visions Film Festival in June 2012 was the 5th annual celebration of student digital video screenings and awards as the community engagement activity of City Voices, City Visions (CVCV) Digital Video (DV) Composing project. CVCV DV Composing project is designed to bring into the classroom the 21st-century digital composing tools to engage students in learning. The film festival showcased talents and achievements of middle and high school students from Western New York schools who created digital videos in classrooms. Support for this project has been provided by the Graduate School of Education.
The Judicial Exchange and Study Academy — Academia de Intercambio y Estudios Judiciales (AIEJ) — develops judicial training programs in many areas, including the values of judicial independence and work efficiency for judges, prosecutors, advocates and court staff in Latin America. Since 2013, I have presented trainings on the Inter-American Human Rights System to the 35-40 judges from Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Peru who have participated in the annual program at SUNY Buffalo Law School. The Latin American judges include jurists working in civil and criminal courts, appeals courts and labor courts. The AIEJ was founded in 2010 and is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Students from the Academies support the Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Partnership (ISEP) and National Science Foundation (NSF) grant-funded initiative.
