Meet our Alumni

Graduates of the School of Architecture and Planning carry the qualities of next-generation leaders: grit, courage, enterprise, and collaboration. It's why our graduates are asking the questions no one else is asking, and turning those ideas into action. It's why UB graduates are leading the profession's most emergent areas of practice. 

From Buffalo to Shanghai, our more than 5,400 alumni are leading the way through inspirational practice. UB graduates hold diverse positions of influence across our professions, from firm executives and government officials, to real estate developers and historic preservationists, to community activists and the heads of design research enterprises.
