Janice BoganJanice BoganDivision of Research

Over the past 15 years Ms. Bogan has demonstrated a high level of commitment and impact at the University, most recently as Assistant to the Vice President for Research. In this role, she serves as primary fiscal officer for the University's Division of Research, managing the Division's finances including seed, bridge, and match funding for faculty and student research. She also provides staff support for the University Senate's Council on Research and works with Division staff to organize an annual research colloquium and other sponsored research events. Ms. Bogan came to her current position after receiving a bachelor's degree in business education and a master's degree in guidance and counseling, and serving in a series of appointments in financial aid services. She first joined the UAlbany staff in 1994, as assistant director of financial aid. She moved to the Office of the Vice President for Research in 2001. Her responsibilities bring her into contact with many university constituencies and require high levels of judgment, diplomacy and skill. She is diligent and highly productive in her core work assignment. She is also the team leader for many special projects, planning and managing events. She contributes to the University beyond her assigned duties, serving often on search committees and special task forces and councils, always with dedication, integrity, and collegiality. We are delighted to present Ms. Janice Bogan with the 2009 President's Award for Excellence in Professional Service.
