CTG UAlbany Welcomes New Faculty Fellows
ALBANY, N.Y. (Sept. 8, 2022) — The University at Albany’s Center for Technology in Government (CTG UAlbany) has embarked on a new endeavor to build a strong and diverse university-wide community around the topic of information and technology in government.
“CTG UAlbany’s new faculty fellows program is designed to serve as a platform of intellectual exchange and an appreciation for interdisciplinary scholarship,” said CTG UAlbany Director J. Ramon Gil-Garcia, who is also a professor of Public Administration and Policy at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy.
CTG UAlbany, which works with governments worldwide transforming public services through innovations in technology, policy and management, has maintained a roster of research fellows since its founding nearly 30 years ago. The new program more than doubles the roster of experts in information, technology and government policy and will provide additional opportunities for colleagues from across the university to share knowledge and collaborate on topics related to information, technology, management and policy in the public sector.
“Our goal is to foster an environment to form collaborations, complete publications, develop new teaching initiatives to support students, and attract external funding,” said CTG UAlbany Research Director Mila Gascó-Hernandez, who also serves as an associate professor of Public Administration and Policy at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy. “We believe that with a small, but steady commitment, CTG UAlbany faculty fellows can benefit from networking opportunities and build synergies around the use of information and technology by government agencies, citizens, and other stakeholders working in the public sector.”
