Welcome back. I hope that your summer has been a good and fruitful one. Unfortunately, during this past summer, our country has experienced several very difficult and tragic events that have left us all feeling sad, angry, frustrated and concerned. I feel deep sorrow for the horrific tragedies that occurred in Baton Rouge, St. Paul, Dallas, and other cities in the past weeks.
These events require us to look inside ourselves to find what we can do as individuals— and collectively — to move beyond the fear, frustration and alienation these actions have caused while examining the systems that have brought us to this point. As you return to Binghamton University, I hope that you will seek out places and opportunities to engage in the necessary conversations that lead to cooperative action and positive change — both at Binghamton and in our communities.
I invite everyone to come together, design and build a better Binghamton University. We need each other now perhaps more than ever. Our hope is for peace, but peace requires work, even though that work might come in the form of listening to someone’s perspective that differs from your own.
In 1992, the Binghamton University Commission on Free Speech and Academic Freedom may have said it best: “A university is a place where all people are respected and where tolerance, rational discourse, thoughtfulness and reason prevail over uncontrolled emotion and prejudice.”
This line, written 24 years ago, should be the prevailing sentiment today when any member of our campus engages with a differing perspective. It should bind us together and help us find a better way forward.
I will close with words from two of our greatest Americans:
“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. … violence merely increases hate. … Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“If not us, who? If not now, when?” John F. Kennedy

As we consider the concerns raised at the University of Missouri, Ithaca College, Yale and other college campuses, we must be steadfast in our efforts to ensure that we create and sustain a campus that is welcoming and respectful of all persons regardless of identity.
We work very hard to ensure that Binghamton University is a place where all people are respected, and as a community of scholars, we are committed to open and respectful dialogue regarding inclusive practices for faculty, staff and students. As an institution, we have and will continue to address concerns raised by our students as well as seek new ways to make sure that Binghamton remains a campus where inclusion and equity are among the defining principles of our University.
Since establishment of the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2013, we have initiated and implemented the following activities and programs:
• Cultural Competency Training for faculty, staff and students
• Dispute resolution services
• Development of intergroup dialogue courses and expansion of current pluralism courses.
• Launched a search for a director for the LGBTQ Resource Center
• Added and/or transitioned more than 40+ single-stall bathrooms into gender neutral bathrooms
• Support of the Faculty and Staff of Color Association as a new affinity group
• Working with TAN (The Academic Network) to increase and retain faculty and staff of color through revising the search process and developing retention initiatives.
• Collaborative discussions around STEM programs and initiatives and how to increase students of color in the STEM majors and what are the current challenges for students.
• “I AM UDIVERSITY” Project for students to have an outlet to tell their stories.
• Micro-aggressions Project that provides an outlet for students to discuss micro-aggressions in a constructive way.
• Collaboration with Undergraduate Admissions to enhance recruitment efforts for students of color.
• Expansion of the MRC Translation and Interpretation Program among faculty and staff.
• Held first Annual Alumni of Color Reunion during Homecoming 2015.
There is always more to be done and we remain open to your suggestions and to continuing dialogue on this important aspect of our University.
