The school is pleased to announce its first associates partnership – with the Amazon.com Associates Program.
This means that a percentage of purchases that are made with Amazon.com by clicking through our website link will come to the school. We thought that Amazon would be a great company to start this with because books have always been at the heart of their business. However, the program extends to virtually all Amazon.com purchases.
The money raised will go to the School’s UB Foundation accounts — we use this money for special initiatives (e.g., students participating in the United Nations day, doctoral student attendance at a professional conference, critical thinking guides for students, faculty skill development workshops and international student and faculty activities).
This is one of our efforts to respond to requests by alumni and friends for creative ways they can support the school. At a time when money is especially tight, this is one way to allow your money to count twice: it allows you to purchase what you need and to provide support for our goals. Over time, we’ll be exploring other associates partners. While working with an associates partner does not imply any endorsement of that partner or of their policies, we will evaluate each partner to ensure that their overall record of doing business is not in direct conflict with our mission and values. We will be looking for other partnering opportunities, so please feel free to suggest any that you think might be a good fit.
