BUFFALO, NY — SUNY Buffalo State announced Tuesday that it has received university designation from the New York State Board of Regents.
The school’s title is changed from SUNY Buffalo State College to SUNY Buffalo State University.
“I am proud and excited that after much discussion, Buffalo State will become a university,” Buffalo State President Katherine Conway-Turner said in a statement. “Just last year we celebrated our 150th anniversary and the many facets of Buffalo State’s rich history. As we look to the future, adopting the university designation is one of the many ways the state of Buffalo is adapting to the changing landscape of higher education.”
An on-campus ceremony will be held at 12:30 p.m. on January 31 at the Campbell Student Union to formally usher in the new name.
