UN Academic Impact Program

United Nations Academic Impact and the University at Albany

On March 24, 2016 the University at Albany became an official member of the United Nations Academic Impact (UNA). UNA is a global initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the United Nations for furthering its purpose through intellectual, socially responsible activities and research.

UAlbany joins over a thousand other colleges and universities around the world in their commitment and active role in advancing the UNA’s basic principles. While UAlbany has identified numerous programs, projects and activities that actively support these principles, three distinct academic focal points have been designated: The Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy, The Center for Global Health, and The Global Institute of Health and Human Rights.
