Workshop Series

COVID-19 Response: Many of our previously scheduled Buffalo Commons capacity-building workshops will be held in the weeks ahead in a virtual format. Please email if you would like to participate.

Buffalo Commons offers workshops that share knowledge for the public good on topics ranging from civic engagement and local policy to best practices in community-based research. Researchers have shared their areas of expertise to audiences of partners and practitioners while organizations have provided trainings on a variety of subjects like LGBTQ Cultural Competency and Research Tools for Organizers.

Click here to view past workshops and their accompanying resources. Unless otherwise noted, each will occur in the Buffalo Commons Classroom @ 617 Main Street, Floor 3R. Space is limited to 30 people. Workshops are free and open to the public.

These workshops were made possible through the John R. Oishei Foundation which is committed to funding important research and promoting community learning.
