Celebrate Amazing Women this Women's History Month

Empower remarkable women with a gift today!

Celebrate Amazing Women this Women's History Month

Throughout the month of March, we celebrate the many women who have made an impact on the university.  

As UB celebrates its deep commitment to diversity, we also invite you to take this opportunity to contribute to those efforts by making a gift, to support future generations of women scholars and our work toward building a more diverse, inclusive community here in Buffalo.

As part of our efforts to celebrate National Women's History Month, we invite your participation in recording a short video testimonial or written testimonial of a UB woman who has had an impact on your life. 

Sharing your story will not only honor the achievements and contributions of remarkable women but also inspire others within our community. 

Additionally, by submitting a testimonial, you will automatically be entered into a drawing for a chance to win two tickets to the sold-out Amanda Gorman Distinguished Speaker Series lecture on March 26, 2024.

Below are just a handful of testimonials we've already received from appreciative UB alumni.


"My story is about my late aunt, Genevieve, who was a UB graduate in nursing. Aunt Genevieve had a long career with the Erie County Health Department. Aunt Genevieve is responsible for me applying to UB and supporting me financially so I could get my degree in engineering. Without her help and guidance I wouldn't have become a success. I am thankful for her every day." 

-- James Hajnosz

"My swim coach Emily Ward, instilled (in all of us) a sense of worth. She taught us to be fearless but smart. She taught us that hard work won't kill us...Pain is temporary, pride is forever!"  

--Margaret Cruz

"Judy Duchan directed my dissertation. She was great , knowledgeable and well published. She was kind, friendly and patient. I will always be grateful to her."

--Priscilla Davis
