By President Aaron Podolefsky

Over the past several weeks, concerns regarding the safety of Buffalo State’s college community have been raised mainly in response to media attention that’s been given to off- and on-campus security incidents involving our students that have occurred during the fall semester. The cumulative impact of these events has resulted in a misperception about the safety of our campus and has overshadowed the fact that Buffalo State is a safe place to study, work and visit.

Buffalo State is an open urban 125-acre campus, connected to and surrounded by the City of Buffalo’s West Side neighborhoods. Located in the heart of the city’s vibrant museum district in the Elmwood-Grant corridor, our faculty and staff members and students are proud to work and live in such a culturally rich and diverse city that’s home to an array of cultural and recreational activities.
