Discovery and Learning for the Betterment of All

At the University at Albany, public engagement has been at the center of our research and teaching since the founding of our institution more than 175 years ago.

Today, UAlbany's engaged scholars, students, staff and alumni work side-by-side with partners from the public and private sectors to find approaches and solutions to our most pressing challenges and to improve the well-being and resilience of communities, at home and all around the world.
