Since 2011 more than 3,364 Buffalo State students together with 32 faculty and staff provided programming and support to over 12,350 youth and family members on Buffalo’s West Side.
Please see our Annual Report for further information about our CAC institutional and community impact.
The CAC promotes Buffalo State’s capacity to engage students in “transformative learning experiences” outside of the classroom while simultaneously “contributing to the vitality of the community.” The CAC has strengthened the connectivity and responsiveness of campus and community through the creation of mutually reciprocal learning experiences for Buffalo State students and local youth.
By physically placing itself in the community the CAC reduces traditional barriers between campus and community. Due to its presence in within the West Side community, new programs have developed in direct response to community partner needs. The CAC connects university resources to community organizations and also facilitating the collaboration of community partner organizations.
