For the past several years, I have worked closely with the city of Binghamton and Mayor Richard David on off-campus student safety. After my meeting with the students today, I called Mayor David and asked to work closely on this incident and others like it, so that we can find ways to respond protectively and supportively.
Our next step will be to create a Town-Gown Steering Committee that will meet to discuss issues related to community safety. I have asked Vice President Brian Rose to create a charge and membership for this committee.
As I have said before, the safety and security of our students is my highest concern. Without this basic premise, everything else we do will be less effective in our mission of enabling students to succeed.
