The CAC provides reciprocal, high-quality learning opportunities for Buffalo State faculty, students, staff, and community members of all ages. The CAC places special emphasis on the needs of families with refugee backgrounds on the West Side of Buffalo and serves as a community-based site for building reciprocal partnerships with Buffalo State and a variety of local organizations.
The CAC will foster the abilities of Buffalo State students, faculty, staff and community members of all ages to actively engage in their communities and develop their social responsibility. As a gateway for Buffalo State’s urban-engaged campus where the city becomes a classroom, the CAC will empower a community of learners to define and create their own success in an increasingly globalizing society.
