Campus Committee on University-Community Engagement

In January 2010, President George Philip and Provost Susan Phillips launched the Campus Committee on University - Community Engagement, noting:

"The creation of the Committee is a major step recommended in the action plan on community engagement released this fall. The overall goal is to build on UAlbany's distinctive strengths in engaged research, teaching and service for the greater benefit of UAlbany and our partners. The involvement of university faculty, staff and students with diverse communities is a valued part of our institutional identity—whether involving school-based initiatives in the region or collaborative research with governments and businesses across the globe.... The Committee will improve the flow of information and ideas and increase opportunities for greater impact."
