Science and Mathematics Complex

An exciting new chapter in our commitment to providing a world-class education begins with the opening of our new $110-million Science and Mathematics Complex.

Construction is scheduled for completion in 2018.

Featuring state-of-the-art laboratories and classrooms, dedicated space for interdisciplinary and faculty-student collaboration, and a public planetarium, the complex will transform how students, faculty, industry, and community experience science and mathematics at Buffalo State.


Eckert Herbarium (ECK)

The Eckert Herbarium houses a collection of vascular plants, focusing on the flora of Western New York. A much smaller number of specimens come from elsewhere in New York state and the United States, mostly notably from coastal Maine and northern Florida. The earliest specimen dates from 1861; a small number date from the turn of the twentieth century, but the great majority date from the 1960s, 1970s, and the 1980s.


Great Lakes Center Field Station

Located on Buffalo's waterfront, the Field Station is the hub of the Great Lake Center's field work. Boasting a fleet of 15 vessels, a microscopy lab, and a fisheries lab, the Field Station, conducting research and providing data that will help us protect Western New York’s greatest natural resource, Lake Erie.


Science Teachers Center

A connected suite of rooms where students can learn, study, use computers, and practice their skills.



The Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (WNY PRISM) was formed to combat the spread of both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species and mitigate associated threats by providing region-wide coordination for monitoring and management. WNY PRISM works with local professionals, organizations, and private citizens to improve, restore, and protect aquatic and terrestrial resources. WNY PRISM is a sponsored program through the Research Foundation of SUNY and is hosted by Buffalo State's Great Lakes Center.
