Welcome, Bengals!

Buffalo State is SUNY's urban-engaged campus. We provide unique leadership opportunities through hands-on research, community-engaged learning, and internships. We strive to foster a sense of civic responsibility and empower our students to become community-minded leaders who make a positive impact in Buffalo and beyond!

This guide provides a list of resources to support community-engaged learning, civic engagement, and opportunities for leadership development.  Please contact Civic and Community Engagement (CCE) at or visit our website if you would like to learn more about our support services.
