UAlbany receives the prestigious Seal of Excellence


National recognition for the University of Albany as the school Friday receives a major award.

The Seal of Excellence. Or the seal of excellence.

Several establishments across the country earned the recognition on Friday, including two in New York State.

Albany and Mercy College in New York.

The Seal of Excelencia honors a school that has focused on providing opportunities and support for Latino and Latino students.

Excelencia’s seal is a 3-year certification and it comes as UAlbany welcomed a freshman class this fall made up of more than 21% Hispanics, the largest in the school‘s history.

We sat down with the school president to talk about how UAlbany continues to help Latino and Latino students move forward. And we also talk about his journey, Dr. Rodriguez, growing up in Puerto Rico and how each step brought him to where he is today.

This exclusive interview airs Thursday right here on News Channel 1 to 4 p.m.
