WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Nancy Ruther has both vision and an uncommon ability to build the consensus needed among individuals and teams to do great things. Nancy helped the University at Albany architect an innovative scholar-practitioner program addressing the needs of both new professionals and advanced leaders. The program includes multiple points of entry, a new short-course micro-credential track, and modular and stackable elements, delivered primarily online, but with face-to-face elements. Nancy Ruther’s innovative thinking, shared during our formative period, has left an indelible imprint upon the character and success of our program.
