Public Access to Records of the State University of New York


Freedom of Information Law (FOIL)

Freedom of Information Law (Public Officers Law Article 6 §§ 84–90) requires that entities within the State University of New York (University) make certain records available to the public. The law requires each campus and the system administration of the University to designate records access officers. Requests for information from the campus or the system administration should be directed to the respective records access officer at each location, as appropriate.

Under FOIL, to view or request copies of records held by Buffalo State, please send a letter, fax, or e-mail to:

Jill Powell
Records Access Officer
Buffalo State
Cleveland Hall 505
1300 Elmwood Avenue
Buffalo, NY 14222
(716) 878-4350 (fax)

Requests under FOIL should include specific information about the records being sought.  Whenever possible, dates, titles, file designations, or other information that will help locate such records should be provided. 

The University policy concerning Freedom of Information can be found on the SUNY Website

A note to the Buffalo State campus community:  Employees in receipt of FOIL requests are asked to forward them without delay to the campus records access officer.  Thank you.
