Engineering Building renovations begin Monday, March 11| March 7, 2013

Work includes building new walls to form offices, labs and classroom spaces, relocation of the restrooms to the center of the building, new flooring throughout, new lighting and power, and mechanical system upgrades. Access through these Pods will remain restricted to construction personnel only. A small staging area will be located at the front (south side) of the building with materials/equipment periodically being lifted into the building through the south-side bank of windows.

king short| January 11, 2013
King, a sophomore human development major who is considering a double major in English, has worked with local middle school students through the national mentoring program College for Every Student. The work helped King earn a Binghamton University Forum Scholarship.
“Anytime I get the opportunity to work with kids outside of campus, I will,” she said.
King, is from Binghamton and also is a member of the softball team, said she was “ecstatic” to receive the scholarship.
“I was so, so grateful,” she said. “It is such a generous scholarship.”
With College for Every Student, King travels to West Middle School in Binghamton and works with six to seven students in academic and social areas. The volunteer experience and the Binghamton University Forum Scholarship have proven beneficial to someone who hopes to become an elementary school teacher in the Binghamton region.
“It has taught me that I grew up with a lot of opportunities and was very fortunate to live in the community I did with such a supportive family,” she said. “I work with a lot of children who don’t have as deep of a support group. If I can be one person they can count on, that would make me feel good. It’s nice to make a difference in a child’s life.”
King also has taken part in events such as breast cancer walks and helped with cleanups during the September floods.
Community service goes with being a student-athlete, said King, who was the high school softball Class B New York Co-Player of the Year in 2010.
“I feel I have the responsibility to give back because (student-athletes) get so much from this school, whether it’s going on spring-break trips or using the fields and facilities,” she said. “Anything we can do – that’s our responsibility.”
“At Binghamton University, I’ve got great teachers and I take a lot of interesting classes,” she said. “I love the athletics and academics here. I wouldn’t change a thing about my college decision.”
parking lot closure| January 10, 2013
From Jean Fairbairn:
The only exceptions I can think of would be announcements from Physical Facilities when the lots are physically closed due to construction or obstacles, and the periodic announcement regarding the closure of Lot C when children are being bussed in to see a performance at the Anderson Center. I don’t know whether University Police would feel it unsafe to allow patrons to use disability parking in that lot under those circumstances but I’ll defer that decision to Dan Chambers.

Nominations sought for DeFleur Academic Prize| December 6, 2012
The Lois B. DeFleur Academic Prize is given to a faculty member or a group of faculty for an achievement that increases Binghamton University’s reputation for excellence, innovation and collaborative endeavors. Achievements in teaching, scholarship and public service are all eligible for the prize. These achievements should rise above our general expectations for a high level of faculty performance. Faculty members at any stage of their career are eligible.
The $10,000 prize is awarded annually for a specific contribution, as opposed to a career of accomplishments, distinguishing the criteria for this prize from those used in tenure and promotion decisions. To qualify, the contribution must not only be recognized on campus, but it must also have received acclaim beyond the campus from peers or an organization. Nominations should include a description of the achievement and its demonstrable recognition. These flexible funds are intended to enhance the awardees’ teaching, research and/or service activities and, thereby, further the University’s mission.
While nominations may be submitted at any time, the final deadline for nominations for this academic year is March 15, 2013. Submit nominations to Michael F. McGoff, vice provost for strategic and fiscal planning, Office of the Provost.
