"I believe UB’s greatest asset is the diversity of its students. Since I’ve been at UB, my students have included a professional skateboarder, a Katrina survivor, a hairstylist, several war veterans, a librarian and a dog breeder. These diverse life experiences create a unique opportunity for all of us to learn from one another."

—Sally Farley, associate professor
