For the past several years, I have worked closely with the city of Binghamton and Mayor Richard David on off-campus student safety. After my meeting with the students today, I called Mayor David and asked to work closely on this incident and others like it, so that we can find ways to respond protectively and supportively.
Our next step will be to create a Town-Gown Steering Committee that will meet to discuss issues related to community safety. I have asked Vice President Brian Rose to create a charge and membership for this committee.
As I have said before, the safety and security of our students is my highest concern. Without this basic premise, everything else we do will be less effective in our mission of enabling students to succeed.

Binghamton University Police are actively investigating this incident. Anyone with any knowledge of this incident is asked to contact the Binghamton University Police at 607-777-2393. There is also an anonymous tip form online.
The Binghamton University Police Department reminds students, faculty and staff that we share many of the crime and safety issues that exist in any city. Community members should be vigilant while walking throughout campus and surrounding areas both during the day and at night, and take appropriate precautions. If you are out after dark, try to travel in groups, use only well-lit routes or designated pathways and do not allow yourself to be distracted by phone calls or by using ear buds. You should also note the location of blue light phones and never let anyone you don’t know tailgate you into your residence hall.
