The School of Social Work cares deeply about the health and academic progress of our students, as well as the safety of our faculty, staff and their families. We are committed to supporting the SSW community, while working together to take the necessary precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. We encourage everyone to stay informed of the latest COVID-19 research and guidance. We ask that you be kind, communicate what you need and take care of yourself.
All UB faculty, staff and volunteer faculty/staff who come to a UB or UBMD campus must omplete the Daily Health Check. If you are unable to use the text-based or web-based Daily Health Check, please complete the accessible form below every day you are on campus.
NOTE: All Visitors (e.g., invited guests, vendors) who are otherwise not affiliated with the university are required to complete the Daily Health Check prior to their arrival on campus. An accessible form for visitors is available here.
Please note that UB students, faculty and staff who are not required to complete the Daily Health Check are strongly encouraged to do so out of concern for their personal health and the health of the entire community.
For complete information on the required Daily Health Check, visit UB’s main COVID-19 page.
To all UBSSW prospective students – despite the current situation surrounding COVID-19, our application process for 2021 continues without interruption, and we welcome your application.
Some of our most vulnerable students—those who rely on the university for food, income or housing—are experiencing significant hardship due to the current crisis. Student emergency funds are available to help ensure these basic needs are met.
