Office of STEM Diversity

UB STEM programs offer students great opportunities to explore a variety of technical careers.

The Office of STEM Diversity seeks to increase the number of underrepresented students pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines at the University at Buffalo.

We offer a variety of student-centric academic and social enrichment programs that feature peer mentoring, faculty mentoring and student research. We also work closely with national engineering organization student chapters and community partners to build a strong, supportive environment.
