From the Associate Vice President for Alumni Relations Since its beginnings serving medical school graduates in 1875, the University at Buffalo Alumni Association has continuously reinvented itself with the times. One thing that has remained a constant, however, is service to alumni. Our work is singularly geared toward satisfying the needs of our graduates, providing them with a welcoming front door back into their alma mater no matter what they need.
