A Peek into the Future

ALBANY, N.Y. (Dec. 9, 2016) — Interim President James R. Stellar hosted a tour of the future home of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) for area business leaders earlier this week.

The tour of the Schuyler Building — the former Albany High School in downtown Albany —was followed by a luncheon with CEAS Dean Kim Boyer and provided an open forum to discuss potential partnerships between the College and the Capital Region business community.

Associate Vice President for Business and Finance John Giarrusso led the tour of the 127,000-square-foot facility, which is on the University’s downtown campus.

Leaders from the Center for Economic Growth, The Business Council of New \York State and Empire State Development, as well as representatives from the Rensselaer County Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber of Southern Saratoga, the Capital District Black Chamber of Commerce, the New York Capital Region Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Greane Tree Technology Group joined the University to explore the site.

Support for the College is widespread across the business community, legislature and with prospective students and parents. UAlbany continues to seek funding to renovate the building.
