The University at Albany has embarked on a $2.4 million project to replace exterior signs on its three campuses with signage that is accessible, easy to read for the campus community and visitors, and complementary to the University's architecture and sense of place and identity.


The University at Albany's broad mission of excellence in undergraduate and graduate education, research and public service engages more than 17,000 diverse students in nine degree-granting schools and colleges.
