After 25 years of driving transformations in public services through world-class research and innovations in technology, public policy and management, the Center for Technology in Government at the University at Albany is changing its name to, simply, CTG UAlbany. 

A research institute at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Albany, CTG UAlbany was established in 1993 as a research center to pursue new ways to use technology, public policy and management to solve complex public problems. 

CTG UAlbany was reclassified as a research institute in late 2017. 

Overall, the institute will continue its work with domestic and international researchers in exploring the societal benefits of new and emerging technologies and incorporate what it learns into the classroom and programs for government leaders. CTG UAlbany will also continue to partner with local, state, federal, and international government bodies as a trusted advisor in the design and deployment of innovative approaches to data and technology-related public policy and governance.

“This is an exciting time for all of us. The new designation as an institute presents opportunities to advance our research, to expand and deepen our collaborations and to increase our impact,” CTG UAlbany Director Theresa Pardo said. “Even with our new title, what is not changing, what continues to drive us, is our dedication to creating public value through sustainable innovations in technology, policy, and management.”
