Boldly Buffalo is a fundraising campaign that will transform UB—and the School of Social Work—in nearly every way imaginable.
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.
These child advocacy courses are open to undergraduate students from all majors and begin Fall 2018. They will prepare students to recognize and respond to child maltreatment.
Whether social workers, educators, researchers or administrators, our graduates make a difference by empowering communities and individuals from all walks of life.
Professional development. Licensure. Application strengthening. Curiosity. No matter the reason, take advantage of our invigorating elective courses, available in seated, hybrid and online formats.
