University at Albany

University at Albany’s Program for Career, Leadership and University Excellence (CLUE)

CLUE Group on Quality of Life: Chaired by Carol Anderson, UAlbany Libraries

Comprised of faculty and staff who are interested in finding new ways to build community across ranks and constituencies at UAlbany. Issues for discussion and development of solutions may include, but are not limited to:

  • Enhance connections between units to diminish a sense of isolation that contributes to lack of connection to UAlbany and to UAlbany colleagues
  • Develop ways to communicate across ranks and constituencies, (including faculty, staff, students, alumni and community members) to learn about the valuable work others are doing that might connect with our own work
  • Articulate University goals and rewards to help faculty at all ranks understand the relationship between their own work and the University mission and align their priorities effectively
  • Develop policies for flexible work arrangements due to life events such as the birth or adoption of a child, or the long-term care of a family member, etc.
