Letter: Kudos to UB for investing in its new Medical School

Kudos to UB for investing in its new Medical School

Hats off to Jeremy Jacobs, Satish Tripathi, Michael Cain and the University at Buffalo team for having the vision and courage to invest in a new Medical School on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus. Investing in Buffalo’s downtown and in the life sciences cluster aligns perfectly with the Western New York Regional Strategic Plan, and advances our economy in significant ways.

The irony of The News article citing criticisms from a UB law professor is that the UB Law School should be taking a page from the UB Medical School’s playbook. This is the time to address the Law School’s declining enrollment and relevance by advancing a vision for its future that includes a strong downtown presence near the courts and near Buffalo’s and Erie County’s seat of government.
