The State University of New York at Albany, commonly known as University at Albany, is a public university located in the capital of New York State, and is the senior campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. Founded in 1844, it is an internationally recognized public research institution, which carries out a broad mission of undergraduate and graduate education, research, and service. UAlbany has three campuses: the Uptown and Downtown campuses in the City of Albany and one campus in the Town of East Greenbush, just east of Albany. The University enrolls more than 17,000 students in ten schools and colleges, which offer 189 undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degree programs. The University’s academic choices are diverse and include a range of new and emerging fields such as public policy, nanotechnology, globalization, documentary studies, biotechnology, and informatics. Students take advantage of more than 300 study-abroad programs, as well as extensive internship opportunities that offer real-world experience in New York’s capital and surrounding region. The Honors College, which opened in fall 2006, offers opportunities for the best-prepared students to work closely with faculty. University at Albany faculty attracted $240.9 million in research funding in 2006-2007 for work advancing discovery in a wide range of fields. The research enterprise is distinguished by established and emerging strengths in four areas: nanoscale sciences and engineering, social science and public policy, life sciences, and atmospheric sciences. A wide range of explorations in other areas also contributes to the rich spectrum of UAlbany research. In addition to offering many cultural benefits, including a nationally-recognized contemporary art museum and a world-renowned writers institute, UAlbany plays a major role in the economic development of the Capital Region and New York State — particularly through its programs in nanosciences and nanotechnology and in the biotechnology and biomedical sciences. An economic impact study in 2004 estimated UAlbany’s economic impact to be $1.1 billion annually in New York State — $1 billion of that in the Capital Region.
