Co-Curricular Opportunities

Faculty, staff and student volunteers at Friends of the Night

Community is life. Partnerships with our community sustain us, giving back energizes us, and making a difference inspires us.

The UB School of Social Work believes in the power and value of community service, both for the individuals we help and the students who give up their time to make a difference.
Several times a year, faculty, staff and students serve food at Friends of Night People (FNP).
The Social Impact Fellowship (SIF) is a partnership between UB’s School of Management and School of Social Work in collaboration with Blackstone LaunchPad. This fellowship connects 16 entrepreneurially and socially minded students to local nonprofits where they are encouraged to develop innovative solutions to issues affecting our community.
