Buffalo, NY – The University at Buffalo will honor its business partners Friday. Workshops and a luncheon will be held at the Hyatt Regency downtown, focusing on UB's role in revitalizing the regional economy.

UB has initiated many relationships with local businesses. One of the most successful is a long-standing partnership between UB's Engineering School and Moog, Inc. The Elma-based company is a manufacturer of high performance systems that control aircraft and satellites.

Engineering Dean Harvey Stenger says the business partnerships like the one his school has with Moog are important to UB and its students.

Besides honoring Moog at Friday's Business Partners Day, UB will present a special award to State Senator Mary Lou Rath, who is retiring at the end of the year. She'll be recognized for her advocacy of U-B.
