We believe community is the foundation of University life at UB, and each individual plays a role in building a strong, diverse community. We understand accountability results when everyone takes responsibility for their actions. We expect UB community members to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects positively on themselves and the University. We encourage UB community members to set goals and strive to reach their potential.

Community Standards
C: Community A: Accountability R: Responsibility E: Excellence
Our goal is to actively engage the UB community in dialogue about the development of University expectations, policies and practices. The UB community is encouraged to take ownership for their decisions, behaviors and attitudes. Community members are expected to ensure their actions do not infringe upon the rights of others. Everyone is expected to perform to the best of their ability and to utilize the opportunities provided by campus resources.

UB Living
C: Community A: Accountability R: Responsibility E: Excellence
Communities thrive when members are united in achieving common goals. In order to learn and grow, students must understand that their behaviors, attitudes and decisions affect the entire community. Students should be empowered to make informed decisions and to understand the responsibility they have to their community. Students who develop strong community values and relationships will be better equipped to excel and achieve their goals.
