Meet Our Alumni:
"It helped to come to a school that's so invested in the field and has so many connections as well. ... If you come from the field of criminal justice in Baltimore city, UB is intertwined in some way, some how, and to be in the field and represent the University at the same time makes you more credible."
Ja'Ara McCoy, M.S. '19 in Criminal Justice, currently works as anti-trafficking and exploitation coordinator for the Baltimore Child Abuse Center.
“It may sound cliché, but UB really did change my life. … I wouldn’t be where I am today without the fellowship and the belief the Schaefer Center’s director, Dr. Ann Cotten, had in me. I made life-long friendships at UB and I will always be grateful for my time there.”
Sue Tatterson, M.F.A. in Integrated Design ’08, currently works as a professor of digital media at Central Arizona College.
