The Students' Advocate works in Judicial Affairs & Student Advocacy and assists students with addressing academic and non-academic, university-related questions, concerns, or grievances.
Much of the role of the Students' Advocate is to provide information, answer questions, clarify the UB Student Code of Conduct, and refer students to the proper sources. Although the Students' Advocate has no specific authority over any segment of the University, we hope to empower and provide students with information so that their questions or concerns can be resolved.
