A Message from the Chief Diversity Officer
Dear UAlbany Community,
Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion
(ODI). We are the focal point for diversity and inclusive efforts.
By aligning the Institution's mission, the objective of the Office is
to facilitate an academic environment that allows everyone to be
successful. We believe that a diverse and inclusive community enhances
our ability to recruit and retain a diverse population of faculty,
staff and students.
We strive to develop and enhance a UAlbany
community in which all members are held accountable for contributing to
the Institution’s organizational culture and climate, by fostering
critical discourse and engaging in meaningful interactions. It is
through an appreciation for diversity that we come to realize our role
and responsibility in effecting change and building an Institution that
promotes academic excellence.
As we guide the Institution toward academic
excellence, we invite you to take advantage of all opportunities to
actively contribute to this effort. We welcome the opportunity to
discuss your thoughts, concerns, and/or questions. Please contact us at
any time, ODI@albany.edu or 518-956-8110.
Tamra Minor, Ph.D.
Chief Diversity Officer,
Assistant Vice President
