The mission of the College of Computing and Information is to support world-class, discipline-based research, and educational programs related to computing and information. The college was formed in the spring of 2005 by the faculties of the Department of Computer Science (formerly in the College of Arts and Sciences), the Department of Information Studies (formerly the School of Information Science and Policy), and a new unit, the Informatics Faculty, which hosts an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in information science. Since then, the Informatics Faculty has become a formal Department of Informatics. The three departments currently offer undergraduate major and minor programs, as well as a variety of introductory and advanced courses including Information Literacy General Education courses. All three units support graduate education as well, offering undergraduates an opportunity to study in a research-oriented environment.
In addition to the disciplinary perspectives found in its three departments, the College also provides the academic focus for the IT Commons, a University-wide program sponsored by the Division of Academic Affairs to support programs in information-related interdisciplinary studies throughout the campus. Through the IT Commons, a number of faculty in departments across the campus have joint appointments to the College’s Department of Informatics and contribute to educational programs both in their home department as well as in the College. For more information about these faculty and other campus courses relevant to computing and information, please see the Department of Informatics web page at http://www.albany.edu/inf
