(CSEE), at the University at Buffalo  (UB), the State University 
of New York (SUNY).

UB-EERI Student Chapter's parent organization is the 
Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI):


The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute is a national, nonprofit, technical society of engineers, geoscientists, architects, planners, public officials, and social scientists. EERI members include researchers, practicing professionals, educators, government officials, and building code regulators.

The objective of EERI is to reduce earthquake risk by advancing the science and practice of earthquake engineering, by improving understanding of the impact of earthquakes on the physical, social, economic, political and cultural environment, and by advocating comprehensive and realistic measures for reducing the harmful effects of earthquakes.

EERIís Vision: A world in which potential earthquake losses are understood and steps have been taken to reduce them to an acceptable level. EERI's role:EERI is recognized as the authoritative source for earthquake risk reduction information in the U.S., and in partnership with other nations, will develop earthquake risk reduction information worldwide.
