How do you balance research excellence and tuition affordability?
How do you keep a focus on internationalism while still staying engaged on a community level?
These are just some of the challenges and opportunities Havidan Rodriquez must consider on a daily basis. In September of 2017, Rodriquez became the new president of the University at Albany.
In this podcast, Rodriquez talks about the priorities he has set and how excited he is to be leading the university. He also talks about his previous experience as the Director of University of Texas Disaster Research Center and the current recovery efforts in Puerto Rico.
