Welcome to the Buffalo State Community Academic Center (CAC).
Through a generous gift from longtime Buffalo State supporters Eleanore Woods Beals, '50, and her husband, Vaughn Beals, the university has opened the doors to this new center located at 214 Grant Street in Buffalo.
The CAC's central mission is to coordinate and provide cradle-to-career educational support programming for youth and families on Buffalo’s West Side.
Programming is developed and designed in collaboration with campus and community partners. Activities and offerings range from outside of school time enrichment to instruction for newcomer refugee youth and parents.
The CAC is jointly operated by Buffalo State's Center for Excellence in Rural and Urban Education and the Volunteer and Service-Learning Center.
