Cora P. Maloney College

The Cora P. Maloney College focuses on enhancing the University at Buffalo experience through a range of educational issues including: academic achievement and enhancement, social justice and cross cultural awareness. CPMC fosters the interconnectivity between UB students and their living and learning community, providing for a transformative undergraduate experience that supports growth in Buffalo and Western New York.

Of particular interest are the Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics Support Programs (UB-STEM) programs, that seek to increase the number of underrepresented students pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. If you qualify to participate, these programs provide services to improve your academic performance, retention, graduation and graduate school acceptance rates.

Find out more about opportunities via the UB STEM blog offers students information about various STEM opportunities, from scholarships and fellowships to internships and graduate school information. 

Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Program (ISEP)

The Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Program (ISEP) is a coalition of partners in Western New York that aims to transform how science is taught in the Buffalo Public Schools. ISEP focuses on the middle school experiences of students in science and engineering, as they transition to high school. The project uses an innovative approach to teacher professional development among high-needs urban schools (including “feeder” middle schools and their corresponding high schools).

Institute for Strategic Enhancement of Educational Diversity (iSEED)

The Institute for Strategic Enghancement of Educational Diversity (iSEED) promotes a culturally and academically inclusive community of students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff. A university-wide institute at UB, the iSEED strives to build a culturally and intellectually diverse and academically inclusive community of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff.
