Campus and Community

The vitality of UAlbany depends on the ability of each and every community member to contribute and thrive on campus – and not just in the classroom.

Creating a More Vibrant and Inclusive Campus Community

Today’s students are graduating into a society that is more fast paced, connected, and multicultural. Students prepare for this reality as part of their UAlbany education. Our campus is more diverse—in every meaning of that word—than ever before. UAlbany’s student body and faculty represent more than 100 nations, and their varied perspectives and life experiences greatly enrich learning.

Your support helps us to foster a combination of spaces and programs that will enable each member of our community—students, faculty, and staff—to reach their full potential.

Amplifying Athletics to Build Community and Pride

Our athletics program inspires student and alumni pride, and brings campus and the community closer together. Your support helps us to build on this momentum, escalating student-athletes’ excellence on the field and in the classroom, and helping them develop into leaders in their communities.

Expanding our Role as Economic Catalyst

UAlbany is the Capital Region’s headquarters for innovation. This happens on campus, where student and faculty entrepreneurs can find support to move their bright ideas from the drawing board to production.

It also occurs through public-private partnerships, such as UAlbany’s Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurship Complex (ETEC), which couples cutting-edge research with economic development initiatives in an effort to speed the transfer of new ideas and technologies to commercial enterprises.
