Steering committees composed of faculty who represent Binghamton’s scholarly expertise in the five areas will guide each area. Each committee will be responsible for defining the direction of their area; play an important role in hiring new faculty to strengthen their area; facilitate collaboration among existing and newly hired faculty; and develop conferences, symposia, and other programs to highlight new developments in their area. Each committee will have a budget provided by the Divisions of Academic Affairs and Research to support its work.

Center of Excellence names new associate director| April 24, 2013
Steve Czarnecki, a Princeton-educated systems engineer, will serve as the new associate director of Binghamton University’s Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center (S3IP).
Czarnecki, an Apalachin resident, brings three decades of experience at Lockheed Martin and IBM to his new role. He most recently served as advanced technology director for new ventures in Lockheed Martin’s Mission Systems and Training business area, which includes the Lockheed Martin facility in Owego.
“I’m excited to be joining Binghamton University,” Czarnecki said. “The possibilities are endless. While I’m sad to be leaving Lockheed Martin, at the same time I’m honored to become part of a team that’s shaping a world-class university. Great things are happening right here in our backyard.”
Czarnecki did his undergraduate work at General Motors Institute, now named Kettering University, before earning two master’s degrees and a doctorate in electrical engineering and computer science from Princeton University. He holds several U.S. patents and has twice received Lockheed Martin’s Nova Award for teamwork. His previous connections with Binghamton University include 15 years as an adjunct lecturer in electrical engineering as well as a role on the industrial advisory board for the Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering.
S3IP, a New York State Center of Excellence, has four research thrusts: electronics packaging, flexible electronics, solar energy and “green” data centers. Read more about the center and its work with industry.

Continuing Education and Outreach to be restructured| April 23, 2013
Binghamton University’s Continuing Education and Outreach (CEO) unit will be restructured at the end of August, bringing resources to the revitalized and enhanced Center for Learning and Teaching as envisioned by the Road Map’s Advancing Learning Team. “The restructuring will allow us to provide greater support to faculty who are seeking to employ new pedagogies — whether in face-to-face, hybrid or fully online classes,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Donald Nieman. Under the restructuring, CEO staff previously administering Summer and Winter Sessions and credit-bearing online classes will join the Center for Learning and Teaching in current CEO offices on the main campus.
A new Center for Innovative and Continuing Education will locate in the University's Downtown Center and will partner with campus units to help offer innovative learning opportunities to expanded student populations. The center will offer professional development and adult education programs, noncredit online classes and undergraduate non-matriculated student advising.
