Office of the President
June 9, 2019
This month marks the 50th anniversary of the uprising at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, generally considered the spark to the modern fight for equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens in the United States. June is now widely celebrated as LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the events at Stonewall as well as to recognize the work of LGBTQ people in promoting equal rights, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. In recognition of Pride Month, I have asked that rainbow colors light the Library Tower this week.
Binghamton University is proud of the contributions that our LGBTQ students, faculty and staff make to our educational and research missions, and we appreciate the influence they have on making our campus a place that is diverse, warm and inclusive. We have worked hard to create a campus climate that is welcoming to every individual, developing policies and services that address the needs of our LGBTQ communities.
For a quick look at what's been happening on campus recently, my quarterly report provides a three-month, easy-to-digest snapshot of activities and initiatives.
State of the University address
Each September, 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!
