Binghamton University’s assessment, which has 10 assessment areas including residence life, health and counseling services, human resources and personnel policies, and campus security, will be led over the summer by Kelly Clark, director of the new LGBTQ Center in the Division of Diversity Equity and Inclusion. Clark will call on different campus departments over the summer to answer questions and supply evidence to support the assessment. “While it will be great to be listed in the database alongside other institutions like Cornell University, more importantly, the index will provide us with an important benchmark from which to assess the success of the Center’s efforts over the next few years,” she said.

To help encourage this culture, two broad-based committees have been working to develop a tobacco-free policy to be implemented for Binghamton University. A draft policy was released to the campus in April for comment. Many students, faculty and staff provided comments which reflected both sides of the issue. The committees have reviewed and considered all the comments and have made a recommendation to the senior officers group to implement the policy. On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, the senior officers group approved this policy, which will be effective August 1, 2017.
We understand that our move to become tobacco-free is a sensitive and difficult one for some. Know that, as Binghamton University becomes a tobacco-free campus, we will do all we can to support those who use tobacco products to eliminate their dependence on them, if they so desire. This includes making smoking cessation programming and non-prescription smoking cessation devices (patches, gum, lozenges, etc.) available to faculty, staff, students and our auxiliary services partners’ employees.
Over the next year, as we all prepare for the transition to a tobacco-free campus, we will continue to provide information and educate the campus and visitors about the policy and its impact. Visit our Tobacco-Free Campus webpage that includes the new policy, FAQ’s and other resource material. Continue to check this website over the next year as it will be updated with new resources as they become available. Questions or issues can be addressed via e-mail and we will respond to you in a timely manner.
