Pedestrian safety and circulation and Traffic Circle Project will now begin Monday
June 17, 2016
Work on the pedestrian safety and circulation upgrades project as well as the main entrance circle renovations will begin Monday, June 20. The pedestrian safety and circulation upgrades work is taking place on West Drive between the Academic Complex and Visitors Parking Lot. Initial activity will focus on drainage work, curbs and sidewalks. Portions of West Drive will be reduced to one-lane traffic during the next three weeks. Beginning around July 5, there will be a two-week period where West Drive will be closed between the Lecture Hall and the Visitors Parking Lot while speed tables are installed. Traffic will be rerouted using the Connector Road during this closure and this part of the project should be complete by the end of July.
Work at the entrance circle is not expected to significantly affect traffic patterns. However, there may be occasional delays as materials or equipment are delivered. The projects are anticipated to wrap by the middle of August. Contact project coordinator Gary Bendert with any questions via e-mail
or at 607-777-4715.

Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion takes on the Campus Pride Index
June 7, 2016
In 2007, the national nonprofit Campus Pride developed the Campus Pride Index, a benchmarking tool offered to colleges and universities to assess their efforts at creating LGBTQ-friendly campuses. Campuses can score up to five stars and have their scores published in the national online database that allows prospective students and families to search for campuses who have "come out" in support of LGBTQ student success.
Binghamton University’s assessment, which has 10 assessment areas including residence life, health and counseling services, human resources and personnel policies, and campus security, will be led over the summer by Kelly Clark, director of the new LGBTQ Center in the Division of Diversity Equity and Inclusion. Clark will call on different campus departments over the summer to answer questions and supply evidence to support the assessment. “While it will be great to be listed in the database alongside other institutions like Cornell University, more importantly, the index will provide us with an important benchmark from which to assess the success of the Center’s efforts over the next few years,” she said.
