Newly appointed State University of New York Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher will visit Buffalo State College on June 22 and 23 as part of her statewide tour of the university system this summer. The tour, which includes visits to all 64 SUNY campuses, will allow Zimpher to meet with campus leaders, hear various concerns, and learn the strengths and challenges of each institution.
Economists, activists, think-tank leaders, and public officials will gather in the Bulger Communication Center on campus today and Friday to discuss how the federal government’s stimulus spending will shape the economic future of the Rust Belt.
The United States is en route to the moon again—and this time, Buffalo State is represented on the science team by Kevin Williams, assistant professor of earth sciences and science education and a planetary geologist.
For many faculty members, the summer offers time to catch up on continuing projects or begin new ones. Many Buffalo State faculty recently took advantage of new programs offered through the Faculty Development Center to hone their work and stay productive during the warmer months.
