Rep. Kathy Hochul and UB President Satish Tripathi visited MCEER and SEESL.

Rep. Kathleen Hochul (D NY-26), together with University at Buffalo (UB) President Satish Tripathi, visited MCEER and the Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory (SEESL) on June 28, 2011 as part of a tour of the UB campus.

Rep. Hochul said, "In light of the news this past week that we have the green light for UB 2020, I wanted to come and lend my support to marshal this to the next phase and be sure that we can realize this vision for our community and the university within five years."

MCEER and the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering lead the campus-wide Extreme Events Strategic Strength, one of eight academic strategic strengths identified as future growth areas in the UB 2020 plan.
