Dear Melanie,

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have been sick for the last week
or so...but am back on the "active" list.

I checked and found that indeed SUNY-Buffalo is on the list. Here's the
list:
University of Hawaii, University of Southern Mississippi, University of
Missouri-Columbia, State University of New York-Buffalo, University of
North Carolina-Greensboro, and University of Pennsylvania-Clarion.

Hope this helps!
Sylvia
