Faculty Engagement Opportunities

Students and professors find many ways to connect with one another, both inside and outside the classroom.  The below opportunities help facilitate that process.

  • Faculty/Staff Advisor Program

    In collaboration with the Office of Student Involvement, Student Engagement honors faculty advisors with a recognition ceremony each spring. The program maintains a list of groups currently seeking advisors and we encourage all faculty and staff to consider being an advisor for the myriad of student organizations on our campus.

    CHEER Fund 

    This program supports faculty and staff initiated undergraduate engagement activities by reimbursing up to $250.00 of incurred expenses. Engagement activities can be loosely defined as opportunities for personal interaction between faculty/staff and undergraduate students that create a mutual sense of intellectual investment.

    Food for Finals

    UAlbany faculty and staff stay up late each semester the night before finals begin to serve students a special meal in the Quad cafeterias. Both Late Night Breakfast in December and Late Night BBQ in May are staffed by "celebrity servers" - our faculty, staff, and administrators!
