    The Learning Environment

    The Cora P. Maloney Center (CPMC) was chartered in 1976 and was named in honor of Mrs. Maloney, who was very active in the Buffalo community, was educationally and civically engaged, and is recognized as one of the leading African-American women who tirelessly built strong communities here in Western New York. Originating as a residential college at UB, CPMC continues to be unique in that it provides a dynamic network of services and opportunities that promote access and academic excellence to address the needs and concerns of UB’s students. CPMC’s focus is to provide students with academic experiences from a perspective that is deeply rooted in the community.

    • Social Justice

    Course Outcomes:

    • Students will demonstrate and utilize success skills
