ALBANY, N.Y. (Nov. 30, 2016) – Professor Laurie Beth Feldman recently returned from a lab visit at Qatar University. She will be packing her bags again in April, this time for the Netherlands. Feldman, a cognitive psychologist with a specialization in language, has won a prestigious Radboud Excellence Initiative Professorship. This allows her to spend one month collaborating at Radboud University in the Netherlands in April 2017, and another month in the winter of 2018.
ALBANY, N.Y. (Nov. 30, 2016) — They come to Albany from around 90 different countries, from Africa, Asia, Latin America. UAlbany’s international students — some 1,770 of them — make up about 10 percent of the overall student body. The numbers have grown by almost 40 percent between 2009 and 2015. And while the students share some of the same challenges and experiences, each brings a unique perspective to the University, and each has something personal to take away.

That’s a 26 percent increase from 2011.
ALBANY, N.Y. (Aug. 8, 2016) – As Super Typhoon Nepartak approached Taiwan, Cidny Ramirez knew she was living her dream.

As fate would have it, Dr. Susan Galandiuk’s choice of double major at UAlbany would make a significant impact on her life’s direction.
Galandiuk knew she wanted to pursue a career in medicine. Because she “always loved science,” her decision to major in biology made perfect sense. Opting to take on a second major in German – while less conventional, perhaps – was just as formative.

This funding from one of Europe's largest financial institutions will support semester-length and summer programs in Argentina’s Universidad del Salvador and a summer program in Brazil’s Mackenzie University.
