Allison Suflita.

Assistant Director for Academic Advisement


Education: BS in Business Administration, University at Buffalo; MS in College Student Personnel Administration, Canisius College

Academic Path: Everyone will tell you that I fall a lot, but my favorite fall was into higher education. In my senior year here at UB, I was offered an opportunity to serve as a TA working with other undergraduate students as they prepared for life after college and the job/graduate school search. This role opened my eyes to the world of work within higher education, and after spending a short time in industry, I confirmed that my calling was to work with college students on campus. I eagerly enrolled in graduate school the following fall at Canisius College where I was able to take advantage of many experiential opportunities. They helped me identify my best fit – working 1:1 with students in an advising capacity while leveraging available technologies to best serve them. This journey over the last 10+ years has taken me out of state, but then brought me back home to Buffalo and more specifically, UB. I am excited to be in this role to help you navigate your educational, professional, and personal goals!

Specialty Areas: Coordination of Admissions Review and Transfer Student Experience

Hobbies and Interests: When I'm not working, I enjoy baking my way through every new and well-loved family recipe, tap dancing and indulging my love for seeing new places.
