  1. Fallball: Johns Hopkins, Albany, Richmond, Harvard in HEADStrong Series Albany

    The Danes won’t be able to replace Lyle Thompson on attack. Still, Albany’s offensive depth is still impressive, and the team knows how to play coach Scott Marr’s system.

    Right now, sophomore midfielder Kyle McClancy is running through X on attack, as he was in fall practice, working with Connor Fields, Bennett Drake and Justin Reh. Attackman Seth Oakes, who started last season on the offense, is not with the team this fall, otherwise he would be the logical person playing behind. After a slow start against Richmond, the group connected on several goals with quick time passing to give them the go-ahead.

  2. Like Father, Like Son: Kyle Marr Scores Against Dad's Team

    In the fourth quarter — with the sun setting over the bleachers behind them, and the daylong Colleluori Classic event ending in Baltimore — Kyle Marr found himself standing at the midline near the substitution box. His dad saw a familiar lefty attackman being guarded by walk-on defenseman Brendan Chattuck, who made the Great Danes roster this fall.

    "Take him," Scott Marr yelled in jest to Chattuck, loud enough so that Kyle Marr could hear him. "Their team's got nothing."

  3. Dear Colleagues,


    As you know, earlier this year I directed my Executive Team to implement a Compact Budget process to aid us in making more strategic investment decisions across all divisions of the University. Today I am pleased to announce the successful completion of the University’s pilot Compact Budget process for the 2016-17 fiscal year.


    This new methodology for resource allocation cultivates more strategic, collaborative, transparent, and sustainable budgeting. The approach supports our goal of advancing the University at Albany to the status of a world-class public research university—a goal that requires strategic alignment between our resources and our priorities. As part of that alignment, all funded projects will be evaluated on a quarterly basis to track the impact and effectiveness of our investments.


    The pilot process produced 280 proposals from across the University. In consultation with the Compact Team, I selected 52 projects for funding, an investment of $5.1 million in base (recurring) allocations and $3.7 million in one-time allocations to be implemented in the 2016-17 fiscal year. Throughout this process, academic and administrative leaders found new ways to collaborate, and in many cases were able to join forces on existing proposals, or to develop new ideas together.


    The funded projects represent a wide range of divisions, all targeted to priority areas, including:


    • Expanding the University’s academic footprint through investments in the new College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, faculty hires, and expanded program offerings.

    • Growing our enrollments through recruitment, retention and enhancements to the student experience.

    • Building our research portfolio, including continuation of the Presidential Initiatives Fund for Research and Scholarship, which seeds transformative research across all disciplines.


    To learn more about the Compact Budget process and to view the complete list of funded projects for 2016-17, please log on to MyUAlbany and click on the Financial tab.


    I’d like to recognize and thank the Compact Team, my Executive Committee, the Council of Deans, and faculty leaders for their deep engagement in this transformative process. This new level of collaboration and planning is truly accelerating the University at Albany's movement toward the next level of excellence.

  4. Fallball All-Access: Albany


    Good info. Some interesting tidbits:


    Face-off specialist Cason Liles (109 of 218, 50%) has transferred.


    Seth Oakes (54G, 12A) has not been with the team this fall. Marr is hopeful he will be back in the spring.


    Albany has added Maryland to its 2016 schedule; the mid-March game will be played in College Park. That game will be a big boost to Albany’s strength of schedule, essentially making up for the loss of the Hopkins game a few yeas back. The Danes will open at Syracuse.

  5. UAlbany football player suspended following on-campus arrest




    The University at Albany announced today head football coach Greg Gattuso has immediately suspended sophomore wide receiver Josh Gontarek following his on-campus arrest by university police on Monday for unlawful possession of marijuana and evidence tampering.

    “Josh Gontarek has been suspended indefinitely due to his arrest and alleged violation of NY State law and University at Albany athletic department and student conduct policies,” Gattuso said in a news release.

    “We will continue to monitor and respect the legal process and take further action as warranted,” athletic director Mark Benson said.

    Gontarek was the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Rookie of the Year last season. He is second on the team with 16 receptions for 181 yards and two touchdowns this season.

    Gontarek is the second UAlbany player to be arrested in the past year. Wide receiver Jordan Crockett of Fort Washington, Md. was charged last November with threatening to blow up the school on the social media app Yik Yak.

    Crockett was suspended from the team. He is back with the Great Danes and has made three catches this season.


  6. Affiliation and partnership strongest words used. Although Senator Farley did say he believed better things were coming. A current Albany Law student graduating next year did ask how this affiliation would be reflected on their diploma........nothing would change still Albany Law School, Union University. Union university partnership would continue.

  7. Just go this:


    To the University at Albany Community:


    Please join me as I welcome Albany Law School President Alicia Ouellette, Capital Region elected delegates, and community, business, civic and education leaders at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, September 29 in the University Hall Atrium for an important announcement regarding UAlbany and Albany Law School.


    We hope to see you there.
