Institute of Cypriot Studies

For more than 30 years, the University at Albany has nurtured its relationship with the island nation of Cyprus. This mutually beneficial friendship has been marked by the exchange of scholars, by archaeological excavations by UAlbany students at sites such as the village of Pyrgos, and by the enrollment of Cypriot students in graduate and undergraduate education. Now this relationship now involves a collaboration betweenthe government of Cyprus, the University of Cyprus, and Cyprus College, which will focus on a variety of issues, particularly those that promote academic initiatives and economic development. The mutually beneficial links between the University at Albany and Cyprus span the range from ancient civilizations to emerging high technologies. Building on this strong base, both the number and diversity of these links will continue to grow and evolve.
