The University at Buffalo Daniel Acker Scholars Program is an individualized program for academically talented students. A component of the University at Buffalo’s Cora P. Maloney College, this unique program offers support services and activities that help a diverse group of students with exceptional academic potential maximize their college experience from enrollment to graduation.
Acker Scholars have a long tradition of contributing to student leadership at UB and participating in community service. Since the first class of students enrolled in 1984, participants have gone on to complete medical, dental and law school, MBA programs, and various nationally recognized graduate programs. Our graduates are: accountants, corporate executives, engineers, lawyers, teachers — the list goes on — and they stand ready to assume leadership positions at UB and beyond.
