"SUNY Buffalo State is committed to the intellectual, personal,
and professional growth of its students, faculty, and staff. The goal of the college is to
inspire a lifelong passion for learning, and to empower a diverse population of
students to succeed as citizens of a challenging world. Toward this goal, and in
order to enhance the quality of life in Buffalo and the larger community, the
college is dedicated to excellence in teaching and scholarship, cultural
enrichment, and service." -- Buffalo State's Institutional Priorities and Values
At the Center for Health and Social Research we are
proud to be an integral component of SUNY Buffalo State's efforts to
provide students, staff, and faculty with exciting opportunities for
intellectual development. Through a combination of external grants and the College's
Scholarship Support Program,
the Center works directly with faculty and students to investigate basic and applied research topics that are
among the most pressing in today's society.
The Center is a leader in
researching critical issues such as drunk driving, suicide, violence,
substance abuse, and educational reforms. Access to new technology such as
geographic information systems and computer-assisted telephone interviewing
are mainstays of the strong methodological approaches used by the Center's
projects. This type of work has resulted in a variety of publications, as well as
partnerships with several academic institutions and community agencies,
and the development of a Risk Indicator Database
for the Erie County Department of Mental Health. The Center is also currently a member agency for
Erie County's comprehensive prevention plan,
Px20 and the Px2011 Initiative.
Please browse through our website for additional information and
examples of our projects. If you have an interest in any social or health
research topic, feel free to contact the Center to investigate
potential opportunities for further collaboration.
