The Emeritus Center

William L. Reese II, Ph.D., Emeritus Center

The University at Albany's Emeritus Center is an association of retired faculty, administrators and professionals who have been granted emeritus status. Established in 2006, the Center encourages emeriti to continue pursuing the University’s mission of teaching, research, and service.

Our Three Voices Grant Program is intended to foster and support such activity by emeriti, while additional funding opportunities are available for University at Albany units administering programs that may be of value to emeriti of the University at Albany.

The Center sponsors an ambitious Speakers Program of educational presentations throughout the year. These programs are hosted at the Emeritus Center on UAlbany's Uptown campus and are open to current and retired faculty and staff as well as the public.

Our Fellows Program honors emeriti for exemplary and sustained professional activity after retirement.
