"Most recently MFC has refocused its mission to serving non- traditional students..."
2016 marks the 93rd anniversary of the founding of The University of Buffalo's "Evening Session" in 1923 at Townsend Hall in downtown Buffalo. The mission of the Evening Session was to provide access to higher education for working adults who could not attend the university during the day. Fourteen years later in 1937, the Evening Session was renamed "Millard Fillmore College" in honor of UB's first Chancellor, 13th President of the United States and one of Buffalo's leading citizens.
During the past 93 years, UB has undergone many changes as it has grown from a private institution (The University of Buffalo) to a leading public research university (The State University of New York at Buffalo). MFC has also undergone many changes over the years transforming itself from UB's Evening Session to Millard Fillmore College to UB's continuing education and outreach college. Throughout these changes, MFC has steadfastly remained a means to the future through university studies for adult students who cannot not otherwise attend the university during the day.
In 2002, MFC refocused its mission from UB's night school to a college for continuing and professional studies. MFC remains dedicated to serving the adult student with academic courses and credentialing programs to meet today's job and career market demand. The explosion of Internet access and computer technology makes it possible for students to take most MFC courses online. Adult students embraced convenience and access of online learning thereby making it possible to take a UB course whether living in western New York, downstate or beyond.
I invite you to browse our selection of UB courses taught by expert faculty with real world experience and practice what they teach. Or find out how adding another credential can bring you a new or better career.
Continuing and professional studies is our business. Welcome to UB's Millard Fillmore College.
