Our Leadership

UB’s administration establishes policies and sets the priorities for the university—academically, professionally and financially. Led by the president and provost, our leaders chart the course for UB’s future. They support and set the tone for our research, teaching and learning agendas, as well as our commitment to public service locally and abroad.
