Davis joined the University at Albany in 2004 as the associate director of student accounts. He has served as the Director of the Student Financial Center (SFC) since the inauguration of this One-Stop counseling center here at UAlbany in 2007. The SFC is responsible for providing consolidated and comprehensive Student Financial (e.g., Financial Aid, Billing and Account Maintenance) counseling and guidance to UALbany students and their families.

Prior to joining UAlbany, Davis served in the United States Air Force on active duty from 1982 until his retirement in 2003. He promotes efforts to assist veterans at UAlbany, and has been working with campus faculty, staff and students to expand the veteran services.

Recently, the SFC assumed responsibility for managing Veteran Education Benefits (e.g. GI Bill) and now offers UALbany veterans and their eligible dependents One-Stop student financial assistance and front-of-line service they have earned through their dedication and service to our great nation. The SFC is also committed to help veterans connect to the growing veteran services on campus, and beyond.
