A message from President Harvey Stenger
December 6, 2014
Dear Campus Community:
The recent grand jury cases involving the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner have left many in our community angry, hurt and seeking social change at the individual and institutional levels. I am proud that our students, through their rights of assembly and freedom of speech, are showing that they care deeply about creating an inclusive environment, not just on our campus but in our country and world. And while hateful and disrespectful speech can also be protected by our first amendment rights, I and other Binghamton senior administrators are embarrassed by and do not condone the insensitive and racist comments that have anonymously appeared on social media in our community in response to the peaceful activism of our student body.
Faculty, staff and students are urged to encourage an open and continuous dialogue about their feelings and constructive ways we can move forward.
The office of the President continues its pledge to provide support and resources to the goal of creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive campus, and I look forward to speaking with any and all students, faculty and staff who want their voices heard on this important issue.
