Informational Meeting for the Honors College Think Tank in the 2023-24 school year

Posted by Tim on February 24, 2023 in Academics, Honors Experiences, Honors Program Announcements, Information Session, New Programs, Uncategorized

Dear Honors Scholars, 

What issues matter most to you? The climate crisis? Systemic racism? Inequality? Educational reform? The Prison-Industrial Complex? The War on Drugs? Civil liberties? Voter suppression? 

Whatever your concerns are, chances are there are other students who share them. 

If you are interested in doing interdisciplinary research with a team of fellow Honors scholars, consider coming to an organizing meeting for the Honors College Think Tank. 

Think Tanks are institutions that bring together people to examine problems in society and advocate policy prescriptions to fix them. 

On March 16th at 3:30 PM, we will hold a meeting in Capen 106C outlining the course:

  • students will take a 1-credit course in the fall to learn about think tanks, policy papers, and organize into working groups. 
  • This will be followed in the spring by the working groups researching their topic and creating policy papers under the guidance of a faculty advisor in a 3-credit mentored research collaboration. 

The finished projects will be presented at the end of April 2024. 

Students will also earn 4 Honors Experience credits for the year.  

This will be a student-driven initiative with students choosing and defining their topics and organizing their working groups. Working group leaders will be chosen by each team. 

If you’re interested, please RSVP → 

PS: Email if you’re interested but can’t make the meeting or if you have any questions.

Minor in American Sign Language

Posted by Tim on January 31, 2022 in Academics, New Programs

A minor in American Sign Language (ASL) is a very useful complement to majors at the University at
Buffalo such as Communication, Health and Human Services, Law, Nursing, Occupational
Science/Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Psychology, Public Health, Sociology, Speech and
Hearing Science, and Theatre. The ASL minor allows you to develop your language proficiency and
knowledge of ASL culture, while also concentrating on other fields of study. For more information,
please go to or
email Andrew Byrne, Director of the ASL Program at

Frequently Asked Questions
• By taking ASL 101 and 102, you can fulfill the Language and Culture track for the Global Pathways
component of the UB Curriculum.
• ASL 101 and 102 are usually offered during summer sessions.
• You can take ASL 211 any time during the minor period.
• The ASL minor does not lead to certification to be an ASL-English interpreter. However, the ASL
program helps prepare you for the admission of an ASL-English interpreting program in the U.S.
• A grade of 72% (C) or better is required in all ASL courses taken toward the minor.
• Placement assessment is available – start at the ASL language class that is right for you!
