Professor Bruce Miroff Retires from Rockefeller After 43 Years
When Bruce Miroff first arrived at the University at Albany, it was a bitterly cold February day. A thick layer of clouds overhead gave the city of Albany a bleak backdrop as he stepped off the plane from Austin, Texas into a blanket of snow. However, when he arrived on UAlbany’s campus that day for an interview in 1978, he was greeted with a warm welcome from his future colleagues in Rockefeller College’s Political Science Department. In search of like-minded faculty and supportive senior administrators, as well as a positive social environment to raise his one-year-old son, Miroff saw the potential in making Albany his home. That summer, Miroff moved his family to the Capital Region, and 43 years later, has never regretted it.
