Prospective Faculty

The College of Arts and Sciences is the largest and most diverse academic unit at the University at Buffalo. The College includes some 450 faculty members and 220 staff members, and is home to approximately 6000 majors and several thousand intended majors. Comprised of 25 departments, 16 programs and 23 centers, the College teaches roughly 350,000 credit hours each year, including two-thirds of all undergraduate credit hours at UB. But more than numbers, our faculty are internationally known scholars.

Within the College there are eight NSF CAREER Award winners in Physics and seven in Chemistry. College faculty members have received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Guggenheim and Sloan Foundations. Their work has earned recognition from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Fulbright program, and the National Science Foundation. One of our faculty has garnered a Tony Award nomination. Another colleague has been awarded the Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, recognition by the French government of significant contributions to the arts or literature. From 2001-2008, a favorable budget situation and a number of retirements allowed the College to grow in faculty size by 21%. Due to that growth, today approximately two-thirds of the entire College faculty have come to UB since 2001. Adding this vibrant and energetic cohort to our base of distinguished faculty brings new approaches to scholarship and to the classroom. These men and women would serve as your colleagues and/or mentors should you choose to build your career within the College at UB.
