Safe Learning and Research

At the University at Buffalo, we strive to create a safe and inclusive research and learning environment. Students, trainees, faculty members and staff members have the right to learn, teach and work in a setting free of mistreatment, harassment and discrimination. If you have concerns related to treatment you have received from others, we have processes in place to provide you with resolutions.
