University Union/Engineering Building pedestrian circulation improvements
June 14, 2016
Work to improve pedestrian circulation and safety in the area between the University Union and the Engineering Building is underway with fencing of the project area. University Union doors exiting to this area will be for emergency exit only during the project to install new sidewalks and some landscaping. The UU dock will remain open during the work; however, access is only via the Library/TechnologyHub/Engineering Building loading dock area. Following completion of the project, access for the UU loading dock through this point will be restricted to large tractor trailers only. A gate will be installed to control access. All other vehicles will have access to the UU loading dock through the Library/Technology Hub/Engineering Building loading dock area. Work is expected to wrap up around Aug. 17.
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.

A message about the Tobacco-Free Campus policy
May 13, 2016
One of Binghamton University’s goals is to be a healthy campus that fosters health/wellness, safety and sustainability, and provides a productive environment for all students, faculty and staff, as well as vendors, volunteers and visitors to campus.
To help encourage this culture, two broad-based committees have been working to develop a tobacco-free policy to be implemented for Binghamton University. A draft policy was released to the campus in April for comment. Many students, faculty and staff provided comments which reflected both sides of the issue. The committees have reviewed and considered all the comments and have made a recommendation to the senior officers group to implement the policy. On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, the senior officers group approved this policy, which will be effective August 1, 2017
We understand that our move to become tobacco-free is a sensitive and difficult one for some. Know that, as Binghamton University becomes a tobacco-free campus, we will do all we can to support those who use tobacco products to eliminate their dependence on them, if they so desire. This includes making smoking cessation programming and non-prescription smoking cessation devices (patches, gum, lozenges, etc.) available to faculty, staff, students and our auxiliary services partners’ employees.
Over the next year, as we all prepare for the transition to a tobacco-free campus, we will continue to provide information and educate the campus and visitors about the policy and its impact. Visit our Tobacco-Free Campus webpage
that includes the new policy, FAQ’s and other resource material. Continue to check this website over the next year as it will be updated with new resources as they become available. Questions or issues can be addressed via e-mail
and we will respond to you in a timely manner.
Senior Officers Group:
James Broschart, vice president for advancement
Gregory Delviscio, associate vice president, Communications and Marketing
Sheila Doyle, executive director of the Binghamton Foundation
Patrick Elliott, athletic director
Valerie Hampton, chief diversity officer
Terry Kane, chief of staff, President’s Office
Michael McGoff, senior vice provost and CFO
Pamela Mischen, faculty advisor to the president
JoAnn Navarro, vice president for operations
Donald Nieman, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost
