On Thursday, November 2, 2017 the 18th Annual Faculty/Staff Research and Creativity Fall Forum will be held in the Houston Gym.
The goal of this forum is to develop, encourage, and support Buffalo State faculty and staff research and creativity, and to make collaborative research endeavors and grantsmanship more accessible. This is an excellent opportunity to network with other Buffalo State faculty and staff and to identify common scholarly and creative interests you may have.
Welcome to SUNY Buffalo State’s Faculty/Staff Research and Creativity Fall Forum. Research and Creativity is an important aspect of our campus. As a teacher/scholar institute we embrace the importance of balancing outstanding teaching with significant scholarly work. Each year across all disciplines faculty and staff engage in the production of important research and creative endeavors. Today, at this forum, we create a space to share our scholarly and creative pursuits with our internal and external Buffalo State community.
I invite and encourage all members of our Buffalo State community to participate fully in our fall forum. Highlighting faculty and staff scholarly and creative work is an important acknowledgment of the significant time, energy, and talent that has gone into the production of this work. It is also important to appreciate and commend the diversity of research that exists across campus. Please join me in celebrating and applauding the participants that contributed to the outstanding research and creative endeavors that will be imparted today.
The Faculty/Staff Research and Creativity Fall Forum is a celebration of the vibrant intellectual environment at Buffalo State. Congratulations to all participants and thanks to the Research and Creativity Council, Research and Sponsored Programs for convening this event.
Colleagues sharing research and creative accomplishments remind everyone of the richness and diversity of our scholarly endeavors. Outcomes shared in the forum cover a wide spectrum of basic and applied research and show evidence of Buffalo State’s commitment to economic development and engagement with the community. I extend my appreciation and gratitude to all participants for their individual and collective commitment to intellectual discovery and for allowing the Buffalo State community to share in their accomplishments.
