Office of the President
June 22, 2020
To Members of the Binghamton University Community,
I am writing in response to letters that you have recently sent me regarding your concern for the emotional health, physical safety, and civil rights of black students, faculty and staff on the Binghamton campus. Your letters also raise questions about the University’s response to specific instances over the past eight years, as well as systemic issues present on our campus today. My most recent statements and actions have tried to address these concerns; however, these steps are just the most recent of many efforts and initiatives I have advanced as president.
Binghamton University is planning a phased return of faculty and staff to campus in the coming weeks with all intentions of welcoming students back to classrooms and residence halls in the fall.
State of the University address
Every fall, I make a State of the University address to campus — one of the fun events I get to do because it lets me talk about our achievements and our outlook for the future. Join me this year at 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the Anderson Center's Osterhout Concert Theater!
Road Map to Premier
Our strategic plan – the Road Map to Premier – keeps us moving forward to achieve our goal of becoming the premier public university of the 21st century.
