In UB's Social Impact Fellows program, students from the School of Management and School of Social Work spend the summer learning about and creating social innovation in Western New York.
Whether social workers, educators, researchers or administrators, our graduates make a difference by empowering communities and individuals from all walks of life.
This micro-credential is open to undergraduate students from all majors. It will prepare students to recognize and respond to child maltreatment.

Professional development. Licensure. Application strengthening. Curiosity. No matter the reason, take advantage of our invigorating elective courses, available in seated, hybrid and online formats.
