Office of Cultural Enrichment and Diversity

Albany Campus: Kahl CC, Lower Level, 292-7747

The Office of Cultural Enrichment and Diversity enhances The Sage Colleges experience through its commitment to fostering an awareness of cultural diversity through programming, advising international students, coordinating study abroad opportunities, and working with multicultural student organizations. A fundamental principle guiding the Office’s activities is when students, faculty, administrators and staff are empowered to participate in ongoing diversity efforts, perceptions are explored, stereotypes are challenged and collaborative efforts are encouraged.   In our increasingly global and interdependent world, sensitivity to cultural differences and an understanding of the value and importance of multicultural perspectives are fostered in various ways at The Sage Colleges.

Cultural Enrichment and Diversity provides an array of services and programs designed to engage all members of the Sage community in campus life through collaborative efforts with student organizations and student government. Working with the Offices of: Student Development and Campus Programming, Career Services and Residence Life, the Office oversees a variety of cultural programming including, but not limited to cultural heritage months, International Food Festival, and sponsored activities and trips. In addition, The Office of Cultural Enrichment and Diversity plays a role in building and maintaining partnerships with community organizations, agencies and schools.

Residence Life

Albany Campus: Residence Hall, 292-7711

Residence Life on the Albany campus is dedicated to fostering community and creating an additional learning environment outside the classroom. In this atmosphere, resident students have the opportunity to explore their potential and develop an attitude of personal responsibility for their own actions. By participating in stimulating programs and through interactions with other residents with diverse backgrounds and values, each student has an opportunity to explore new areas of intellectual thought and personal growth. These living and learning centers are supported by trained paraprofessional student staff and experienced administrators to encourage students to practice life-skills such as decision-making, leadership, conflict resolution and team work.

Albany Campus Residence Hall

The residence hall provides housing for students who are in good academic standing. The small size of this hall encourages a strong sense of community and incorporates the educational mission of SCA in its programs. This coed hall helps students develop and utilize leadership qualities as well as enhance life-long learning skills which support their academic, social and personal growth.

University Heights College Suites (UHCS)

The apartment style housing allows upperclassman students to reside in four bedroom units, each with their own kitchen and living rooms along with private baths. A Resident Assistant also resides in the apartment complex and provides guidance and leadership to upperclassman students.

More information on UHA Housing can be found on the University Heights College Suites website:
