COVID concerns prohibited an in-person Citizen Laureate event this year, so please join us in supporting the university and recognizing the honorees via this virtual event.

Participating is easy – simply tune in between 5:45 and 6:00 p.m. where the viewing link will be accessible to you and anyone you invite to join you. We also encourage you to celebrate with us by following UAlbany Fund on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and using the hashtag #CitizenLaureate

At a time when our organizations, families, friends and students have been confronted by multiple challenges, we appreciate our communities joining together to honor our past while investing in our future.

For more than 40 years, the University at Albany Foundation's Citizen Laureate Awards Dinner has honored outstanding leaders in business and industry, government, and academics. It has also served as a major fundraising event for UAlbany student scholarships.
