Congratulations to Dr. Zborowski on his Retirement
The Psychology Department would like to announce the retirement of Dr. Michael Zborowski effective August 29, 2021. For us, this is a bittersweet occasion. On one hand, we want to congratulate Dr. Zborowski and are excited for him as he continues to pursue his clinical work and critical service to the Buffalo and Western New York communities. But on the other hand, we also recognize that his departure is a tremendous loss to our students, faculty, and college. For 30 years, Dr. Zborowski has been a tireless advocate for the intellectual and personal growth of students and will be greatly missed. Any student with a clinical interest has likely taken a course from Dr. Zborowski, who has infused his wealth of clinical knowledge and experience into his course materials, and similarly used his wide network of local connections to help support students in our Internship Program. Over the years, Dr. Zborowski (affectionately referred to as Dr. Z by students) was known to spend hours outside of classroom time….often well into the evening when others had gone home….. to teach, guide, and mentor students in the pursuit of their dreams of working in field of Psychology. Beyond the classroom he has been a tireless advocate for mental health services, and as a licensed clinician has served in a leadership capacity on several professional organizations and organized numerous conferences and speaker series. On campus, his committee work has always focused on outcomes that benefit student welfare, including student advisement and assessment. In this respect, it is no surprise that Dr. Zborowski’s final service to students was as a volunteer for the Fall 2021 Academic Day to help greet and orient our newest incoming Psychology majors. Dr. Zborowski will be deeply missed on campus, and we wish him continued success as he continues his work in the community. He will retain his Buffalo State email address after retirement and we encourage you to reach out to congratulate him, thank him, or even chat about the Bills or the Rolling Stones. Congratulations again, Dr. Z!
