Message from the Dean
Welcome to the University at Albany’s College of Emergency Preparedness, Homeland Security, and Cybersecurity (CEHC).
At CEHC, you have a tremendous opportunity to make your mark on the world. Here you will receive the essential tools needed to address some of society’s biggest challenges such as global responses to disasters and the systematic inequalities and injustices in government services. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and forge your path as a future leader in preparedness, homeland security, cybersecurity, and information science.
Our College has a unique interdisciplinary culture that truly sets us apart. We’re proud of our work not only in the classroom but in our communities as well. Our faculty conduct research that contributes to a better world and our inclusive and accessible laboratory ecosystem showcases this vast array of innovative research endeavors. We’re also committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in all we do, and are immensely grateful for the engagement and generosity of our alumni and donors.
We have a simple motto: Make a Difference. The College serves as a gateway to endless opportunities if you work hard and are willing to continue learning and becoming an instrument of positive impact on our communities.
As both an academic and practitioner, I believe cultivating diverse, educated and well-trained students is not just a moral necessity but a national security imperative. Every year we welcome new students and faculty that adhere to this sacred mission, and each year our students become more involved, committed, diverse and well-known for their actions and activities.
Our College is extremely dynamic and we work hard every day to expand our academic, experiential learning and study abroad offerings. Check out our variety of programs and opportunities. Should you have any questions, you should not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected].
Our location at ETEC, UAlbany’s newest state-of-the-art facility, provides ample opportunities for innovate, interdisciplinary work. Here you will be able to further promote innovation; foster personal, social, and economic growth; and continue networking and sharing ideas and resources.
Home is where the family is, and we proudly call CEHC home. Come join us!
Robert Griffin, Dean
