Since 1871, when the Buffalo Normal School first opened its doors, Buffalo State has enjoyed a long and distinguished history of preparing highly effective teachers and educational leaders.

For more than 140 years we have dedicated our research, scholarship and community service to that prime directive.

We are a vibrant community of faculty, staff and students committed to the intellectual, personal and professional growth of future and practicing professionals in the diverse fields of education. Our commitment transforms lives and the communities where our candidates and graduates live and serve.
