ALBANY, N.Y. (Jan. 24, 2023) - President Havidán Rodríguez has assembled a Steering Committee to guide the reunification of the University at Albany and the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

The Steering Committee will be chaired by President Rodríguez and synthesize the recommendations of five working groups focused on the core academic and administrative functional areas essential to successfully and efficiently reintegrating CNSE into UAlbany.

The working groups are focused on academic affairs, finance and administration, research and economic development, student affairs and student success, and strategic communications and marketing. The Steering Committee and each working group will include representatives from both institutions.

More details on the Steering Committee and working groups is available on the UAlbany-CNSE Reunification page

CNSE, which is located in Albany, was founded at UAlbany two decades ago but has since 2014 been part of SUNY Polytechnic Institute. SUNY's Board of Trustees voted in December to charge UAlbany with devising a master plan to reintegrate CNSE into UAlbany by the end of this year.
