The Office of Diversity and Inclusion has a variety of training and educational programs for faculty, staff, and students. First-year students participate in a two-hour interactive session called “Inclusive Danes,” which addresses topics such as oppression and discrimination, allyship, and racism in the United States. There are also new training opportunities for faculty and staff, including “Inclusive Search Training,” which examines the impact of increased cultural competency on efforts to hire faculty and staff that reflect the diversity of the student body.
In July, the university received a $1 million, three-year grant from the National Science Foundation to build gender parity among faculty in STEM fields. And this fall, the U welcomed the largest and most diverse class in the university’s history, maintaining high academic standards.
“Receiving the HEED award four years in a row is a testament to the ongoing work the university is doing on diversity issues,” said Samuel Caldwell, chief diversity officer and vice president of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. “These include our latest work with the Racial Justice Committee, renaming the Indian Quad as the Indigenous Quad, the Juneteenth Conference and last Saturday’s Race for Equity 5K.”

Last week, new Great Danes moved into their residence halls and campus apartments and were invited to join a candle lighting ceremony on Friday. The evening included speeches by Vice President of Student Affairs Michael Christakis, Dean of Undergraduate Studies Joanne Malatesta, Student Body President Abdullah Gaudiabi, and Student Body Vice President Mya Williams. It concluded with the lighting of the university torch and a class picture at Tom and Mary Casey Stadium.
After Saturday night’s dance party on the Science Library lawn, freshmen gathered on Sunday for Commencement and the President’s Picnic. Students from both the classes of 2024 and 2025 and their families were invited to the ceremony.

The roughly 30-minute ceremony included greetings from Christakis and associate professor of sociology and 2021 Torch Award recipient, U student Robin Murray and the Rev.

“If you think of your U-journey as a book, today is the beginning of the first chapter,” Rodriguez said. “It’s a great metaphor because a core part of our mission is literally empowering you to be the author of your own success.”
“You are a special generation of young adults, students who have already faced significant challenges in the past 18 months. I promise you that the experiences you’ve had will serve you well – make you stronger and more resilient,” he added.
As the U looks forward to a more regular campus environment this fall, following protocols and requirements will ensure the health and safety of all community members—and restore and maintain the vibrancy we’ve lost over the past year and a half.

The Great Danes will host Yale on April 21 and Penn on April 26 in the quarterfinals of the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
“The home schedule is pretty tough this year,” UAlbany coach Scott Marr said recently. “Covid has changed a few things away from home, so the schedule is a little off this year, but the amount of home games we have is in our favor. We’ve never had so many home games before. I think. In that group (of players), a lot of opportunities at home. It’s great to get and be in a position to host the America East Championship and then go from there.”
UAlbany opens the season Feb. 10 at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse. The Great Danes play just four road games, including the America East Conference Tournament at defending champion Vermont on March 25, at league newcomer Bryant on April 8 and at Binghamton on April 29.
