UB vice president Dennis Black resigns

No reason given for Black’s sudden resignation


Dennis Black, vice president for university life and services, has resigned.

President Satish Tripathi did not give a reason for Black’s departure. His resignation is effective July 7 and a search for a vice president will commence in the next weeks, according to the university’s news memo.

UB Spokesperson John Della Contrada’s news release stated that the university “does not discuss personnel matters,” and UB has nothing to add to the statement.

Black has been a part of UB for nearly 40 years and has served under five presidents, according to The Buffalo News. Black has served as vice president since 2010.

Laura Hubbard, vice president for finance and administration, will assume management of University Life and Services operations effective immediately and for an interim period.

In his announcement, Tripathi thanked Black for his service and “wished him the best in his retirement.”
