Founding director of LGBTQ Center begins duties today
April 4, 2016
Chief Diversity Office Valerie Hampton announces the appointment of Kelly Clark as founding director of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Center.
Clark has extensive experience as community safety program director and intergenerational programs director of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley in Rochester, N.Y. She has also worked in alumni programs at the University of Rochester, as director of multicultural affairs at SUNY Geneseo, and as special assistant to the president for multicultural programs and affirmative action as well as Educational Opportunity Program counselor at SUNY New Paltz.
In her role, Clark will advance the diversity mission of the University by seeking to create an environment that is inclusive and supportive of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.
“It really is the perfect time to build the center,” said Clark. “Unlike many other centers, President Stenger, Valerie Hampton and others who crafted the plan purposefully placed the center in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This will give me the opportunity to work broadly across the entire University, supporting students, faculty and staff as well as gaining support from alumni.”
Clark earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in human development and counseling from the University of Rochester, and her EdD in executive leadership from St. John Fisher College.
She begins her duties at Binghamton today, Monday, April 4.

Faculty asked to encourage senior students to complete survey
March 2, 2016
As senior students receive their e-mail invitations to participate in a Web-based College Senior Survey, faculty are asked to encourage them to complete the survey prior to its April 30 deadline.
The national survey examines the effectiveness of college by connecting students’ academic, civic and diversity outcomes with a comprehensive set of college experiences. The survey, conducted by the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA, is designed as an exit survey. Results will help Binghamton University better understand our students’ needs, how we can provide improved educational opportunities for them and how we fare when compared to other colleges and universities nationwide. Confidentiality will be maintained and only aggregate data will be reported.
Each student who completes and submits a survey by April 30, 2016, will be automatically entered into a drawing to win one of 20 Barnes & Noble gift cards with a value up to $100.
If you have any questions about the project or how the University will use the survey results, contact Nasrin Fatima via e-mail
or at 607-777-2365.
