October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we’d like to invite you to join us in the many activities taking place at UB this month (click here for event schedule).  TODAY (October 2) our nationally recognized, award winning peer education groups, the UB Men’s Group and the Student Survivor Advocacy Alliance will be holding an all-day event in the Student Union Lobby, and handing out purple bandanas (while supplies last) for folks to wear as a show of support for survivors.  We will also be kicking off our month-long collection of donations for Haven House (our local domestic violence shelter) and Crisis Service’s hospital response comfort kits. For more information, visit the event page: Walk With Me UB.

Revolt! – A Conference On/In Upheaval

Posted by Tim on March 11, 2019 in Event, Student Clubs

Attention Undergraduates,

The UB Undergraduate English Club is hosting the Fifth Annual
Undergraduate English Conference and is now seeking undergraduate
submissions for presentation. The theme for the conference is revolutions,
uprisings, and upheavals of all kinds, across historical periods and
disciplines. We welcome submissions examining revolutions or radical
change from historical, literary, anthropological, philosophical, or
other points of view. An ideal paper presentation might rely on Marxist
literary theory to relate an important work of literature to its social
setting, or compare historical instances of major political change to the
contemporary moment, for example.

The conference will be held on Friday, April 26 from 12pm to 6pm in
Clemens 120. Light refreshments will be served, and attendance is open to
all students and the public. A 250-300 word abstract will be due by
midnight on Friday, March 15. All abstracts should be emailed as a .doc or
.docx file to UBenglishconf@gmail.com.

UBReUSE Looking for Student Volunteers

Posted by Tim on April 12, 2018 in Networking, Stress Relief, Student Clubs, Volunteering, Volunteers Needed

UBreUSE is going on its third year of operation at UB this year, and we need help from motivated underclassmen. As a leader in sustainability on campus I was hoping you would be able to connect me with some people that you have identified as young leaders. A little bit about UBreUSE to share with your students:

UBreUSE is University at Buffalo’s official zero waste initiative move out program started by a handful of UB’s Education and Leadership Fellows for Sustainability (including baby freshman me!) back in Spring 2016. Since then we have diverted over 12,000 lbs of waste from the landfill, and earned over $3,000 from sales.

The Problem: During move out of people throw away items that aren’t garbage (Clothing, kitchen ware, rugs, shower caddies, even mini fridges and TVs, etc) because they don’t need them anymore or can not take everything home with them. These items are completely fixable or usable, yet they are going directly to landfill.

Our Solution: We believed that we could do something about this needless waste, and decided to organize a way to collect all of the unwanted goods and find people whodid want them.

Turns out, the people who want this exact stuff are UB underclassmen moving into the same dorms in the fall! SO what we do is this:

1.) Collection during move out week

2.) Storage in Trailers on campus, refurbish and clean items over the summer

3.) SALE of all items during move in week (late August/early September)

What we need:

This program is an entity of UB Sustainability and we are supported by Pro Staff, but it is completely student driven. UBreUSE needs hard working and dedicated students to make it work. Active volunteers who can not only help out during event weeks, but can represent UBreUSE year round and be a part of the team. We work hard and have lots of fun year round. In addition to needing team members, we are also looking for students who show initiative to promote to team leaders to carry out the program in the future.

To learn more or to help, please contact….
