The physical space of Buffalo Commons is situated within the Market Arcade in Downtown Buffalo, and provides a central location for faculty, staff, students, and the community to convene and work together on action based research on a range of Buffalo-specific issues.

The inclusive and adaptable space includes:

  • Multiple conference and meeting rooms with AV/VC capability
  • Collective working spaces with technological tools
  • Various subscription based platforms: including Adobe and ArcGIS Pro Suite
  • Visual Buffalo-based arts integration

The in-person feature of the Buffalo commons includes large meeting and conference rooms with video-conferencing capability, working spaces with computers, wall-mounted digital displays, and maps, all accessible for community members students or scholars. As the project develops, available software will correspond to distinct forms of community research from data collection including mapping software, statistical packages, report design software, image and photo editing tools, and data visualization tools. Any Cornell faculty visiting Buffalo or looking to host a talk or event or would like to learn more about a partner organization, are encouraged to reach out to us if they are interested in using the space.
