President of University at Albany Named to National Campus Compact Board
Robert Jones, University at Albany president, has been named to the board of Campus Compact, a coalition of presidents focused on the civic purposes of higher education.
More than 1,100 college and university presidents are involved with the nonprofit Campus Contact that works to deepen higher education's ability to improve community life and educate student on civic responsibility.
Jones has made improving community engagement one of his top four priorities since he joined UAlbany in 2013. The school enrolls more than 17,000 students and is the largest public university in the region.
Jones' other priorities include the expansion of academic programs, recruiting more out-of-state and international students and and increase the university's financial resources.
He will serve a three-year term on the Campus Compact board.
