Call for a new Organized Research Center (ORC)
January 26, 2017
The Division of Research announces its annual call for a new Organized Research Center (ORC).
Binghamton University’s ORCs provide a supportive infrastructure for interdisciplinary research on the campus. The ORCs facilitate research collaborations; disseminate research results through research conferences, meeting and other activities; strengthen graduate and undergraduate education by providing students with training opportunities and access to facilities; and seek extramural funds for research and scholarly activities. ORCs are led by tenured, full-time faculty and include three or more faculty working in a critical realm from one of more departments. ORCs are established based on the determination that the existence of the ORC is necessary for the center to be successful in achieving its goals and objectives. ORCs are established with internal start-up funding and should become self-sustaining within three to five years.
Go online for more information
or contact Christi Cartwright-Wilcox
if you have questions.
Deadline for proposals is March 1, 2017.

These luncheons, hosted by a faculty leader, facilitate informal discussions on selected research topics with the hope that participants will develop research ideas and perhaps make collaborative connections with colleagues from across campus. Up to $150 is available for approved requests. More information is available online

Message from President Harvey Stenger

It is with deep sadness that I share news of the death of a student, Stefani Lineva. It was Stefani’s first semester on campus. She was a member of our tennis team who had transferred from Adelphi. The loss of someone so young and talented is almost impossible to imagine and impacts our entire community. We will miss Stefani's spirit, passion and engagement with everyone she touched on our campus.
On behalf of the University community, I offer my deepest condolences to Stefani’s family, teammates, classmates and all who knew and loved her. Please keep her and her family in your thoughts as we all mourn her loss.
Information regarding memorial services will be forthcoming once details are confirmed.
Support services are available to all members of the Binghamton community dealing with this loss.
