The Loyalty Society

About the Loyalty Society

The Loyalty Society recognizes donors who faithfully contribute each and every year. Membership in the Loyalty Society is established upon the third year of consecutive giving and continues with each consecutive year.

Your annual support means you belong to a community of alumni, parents, and friends who are making a difference in the lives of our students. We truly appreciate your continued commitment to UAlbany and your investment in our students.


Celebrating Loyal UAlbany Faculty and Staff

At the annual Faculty and Staff Donor Reception we give special recognition to our 25+ year loyal donors. This year we honored Regina Testa and Diane Dewar.

Regina is head of the Innovate Make Create Center in the University Libraries. The Center provides space, instruction, consultation and equipment for our students while supporting the creation of multimedia projects and digital design of presentations and publications. 

Diane Dewar, Associate Professor in the School of Public Health, concentrates on medical technology and health economics. Diane couldn’t join us the morning of the event, however we are grateful to both Diane and Regina for 25 years of consecutive and loyal giving to UAlbany.
