The University at Buffalo Launches RENEW to Address the Most Important Environmental Issues of Time

The University at Buffalo has announced the launch of RENEW (Research and Education in eNergy, Environment and Water), an ambitious, university-wide, interdisciplinary research institute that will focus on the most difficult and complex environmental issues, as well as the social and economic issues with which they are intertwined. RENEW will harness the expertise of more than 100 faculty across the university, with the goal of hiring 20 more outstanding faculty with expertise in such areas as aquatic ecology, pollution law, behavioral economics, environmental planning, community health and energy/environmental systems. The RENEW Institute will place UB at the forefront of environmental and energy research focused on sustainability, climate change and natural resources, said UB Provost Charles F. Zukoski. The initiative will build upon faculty strength across six UB schools and colleges. It will receive up to $15 million in university funding over the next five years to hire faculty and develop new academic programs for students. RENEWs research thrusts will address a variety of prominent issues, such as energy diversification, freshwater protection and restoration; ecosystem science, engineering and policy; societal adaptation to changing environments and the green economy; public health; and environmental management and governance. The Institutes interdisciplinary focus involving the faculties of the School of Architecture and Planning, College of Arts and Sciences, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Law School, School of Management and School of Public Health and Health Professions is designed to foster new collaborations and produce new ideas. The initiative will tap the leadership and vision of deans and faculty at the six UB schools and colleges.

Roswell Park And UB Are Not Planning Merger

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said he knows nothing about a possible merger between University at Buffalo (UB) and Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Cuomo said, “What we have talked about are creative alternatives.” Officials in Albany last year threatened to eliminate the state’s annual subsidy of about $103 million to Roswell Park, sending signals that the cancer center needed to reduce its reliance on public money. “The $100 million subsidy will be very hard to continue as the state budget is trimmed, so Ros-well needed a financial alternative,” Cuomo said. A consultant hired to develop a self-sufficiency model for the cancer center encouraged Roswell Park to enhance its relationship with UB. Roswell Park, UB and the John R. Oishei Foundation have jointly hired another consultant to examine collaboration to benefit both institutions, a cancer center official said. Officials in the medical community earlier 2013 said The News that a merger seemed impractical because, for starters, it could not replace lost revenue from the state. “There was talk a while back about some type of merger for Roswell,” said Gioia, a key Republican fundraiser in the region and former ambassador to Malta. “I talked with Brian about it. He was informed and an advocate for keeping it independent. It’s been a critical catalyst for the Medical Campus and by far the best thing we have going for us.” “We’ll be receiving a formal report shortly, but early on, it became clear to all parties that a merger of RPCI and the university was neither necessary nor desirable. The idea of a collaboration between the two of us is nothing new. Our long-standing partnership in education is but one example,” Donald L. Trump, President and Chief Executive Officer of the cancer center, said in a statement.
