William R. Greiner Scholarship Fund

William R. Greiner, who spent 42 years at UB as president, provost and longtime Law School faculty member, died in the Cleveland Clinic on Dec. 19, 2009, due to complications from heart surgery. He was 75.

For those wishing to make a contribution in memory of Professor Greiner, the family has identified three campus programs that held special importance to him: the Center for the Arts, UB athletics and the William R. Greiner Scholarship Fund.

The fund, established in his honor in 2004, supports an endowment for a full-tuition scholarship to the SUNY Buffalo Law School for a meritorious student who exemplifies leadership ability, dedication to public service and commitment to the Western New York community.

Professor Greiner, who joined the law faculty in 1967, rose through the faculty and administrative ranks, culminating with his appointment as UB's 13th president in 1991. He served until 2003, and was named president emeritus by the SUNY Board of Trustees.
