A Message from the Chief Diversity Officer

Dear UAlbany Community,

Welcome to the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI).  We are the focal point for diversity and inclusive efforts. By aligning the Institution's mission, the objective of the Office is to facilitate an academic environment that allows everyone to be successful. We believe that a diverse and inclusive community enhances our ability to recruit and retain a diverse population of faculty, staff and students.

We strive to develop and enhance a UAlbany community in which all members are held accountable for contributing to the Institution’s organizational culture and climate, by fostering critical discourse and engaging in meaningful interactions. It is through an appreciation for diversity that we come to realize our role and responsibility in effecting change and building an Institution that promotes academic excellence.

As we guide the Institution toward academic excellence, we invite you to take advantage of all opportunities to actively contribute to this effort. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your thoughts, concerns, and/or questions.  Please contact us at any time, ODI@albany.edu or 518-956-8110.
