Citizen Laureate Awards

The University at Albany Foundation’s Citizen Laureate Awards Dinner honors outstanding leaders in business and industry, government and academics for their extraordinary accomplishments. A tradition begun in 1977 as a way to strengthen the ties between the academic and business community, the dinner has become the
Capital Region’s premier awards dinner, with
over 70 distinguished award winners grace its history.

Each of our laureates enriches our community in distinctive ways — economically, scientifically, culturally, intellectually, and socially — and, taken together, their efforts continue to transform our Capital Region. The Community Laureate Award honors individuals for their outstanding contributions to the Capital Region and beyond. The Academic Laureate Award recognizes individuals for their notable achievements in academia and research.

The proceeds of the dinner support The University at Albany Foundation’s Campaign for Students, which supports student programs and our ability to ensure access to the finest higher education experience possible. Established in 1967 to encourage philanthropic support, The Foundation continues to advance the University’s strategic goals and sponsors efforts to build the University’s ties to the community.
