Each year, the University at Albany honors special members of its community with Excellence Awards denoting exceptional contributions to the life of the campus. Two faculty members received this tribute in 2007 for Excellence in Teaching (Part Time).

Robert McEvoyRobert McEvoyPublic Administration and Policy

Robert McEvoy has been teaching courses for the Department of Public Administration and Policy since 1979. His experience as a village, city, and county manager since 1970, including his service as chief executive officer for Schenectady County for 22 years, help to make him an irreplaceable teacher of local government in the department's master's programs. McEvoy's numerical student course evaluations are outstanding, placing him the top 10 percent of the full-time faculty in Public Administration. But his contributions in the classroom are only part of the excellence he brings to Rockefeller College. He serves as a deeply committed mentor for every student expressing interest in careers in local government. Students adore him, both for the wisdom of his counsel and for the time he unstintingly gives to them. After receiving their master's degrees, they all are placed around the country in positions in local government that McEvoy has helped them find through his extensive network of friends and professional contacts. He is a central member and leader of the International County Managers Association, managing editor of the Journal of County Administration, and executive director of the New York State City/County Management Association.
