Presidential Initiatives Fund for Research and Scholarship

A top priority of University at Albany President Robert Jones is growing the university’s research portfolio. To support this objective, he established the Presidential Initiatives Fund for Research and Scholarship with an allocation of $500,000 to stimulate cutting-edge research that will enhance UAlbany faculty’s ability to compete for large-scale, interdisciplinary extramural awards and raise the national and international profile of the university.

Recipients of the first round of awards were Associate Professor of Management Janet Marler and Professor of Finance Hany Shawky, who are collaborating on “A Multi-level Study of Advanced Human Resource Data Analytics, Firm Productivity and Employee Well Being.”
