Academic Citations

One of the important outcomes of the university’s recent brand launch is consensus on the name of our university. There has been much inconsistency in the past, which has caused confusion and impacted our reputation.

There are only two ways to refer to the university:

  • University at Buffalo
  • University at Buffalo, The State University of New York

There are no other approved names for the university. The use of “SUNY-Buffalo” and other versions of the name are no longer permitted.   Please do not use any former names going forward.

This name should be used on all communications, such as affiliations on journal articles, conference registrations, contest entry forms, email signatures, and other written materials.

Common affiliations to be used for our school are as follows:

Departments

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University at Buffalo

Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, University at Buffalo

Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, University at Buffalo

Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University at Buffalo
