Stamp named dean of Graduate School at Binghamton University


Nancy Stamp, an experienced researcher and teacher, has been named by Provost Mary Ann Swain to guide Binghamton University’s graduate programs as the new vice provost and dean of the Graduate School.

In making the appointment, Swain said, Stamp, a professor of biological sciences, demonstrated a knowledge of national trends in graduate education during the interviews for the position.

“She also offered many ideas for how to use best practices elsewhere to improve graduate education at Binghamton,” Swain said. “She is an effective researcher and graduate director in her own department. I look forward to working with her, using her insights and experiences to enhance the quality and reputation of our graduate programs.”

Stamp joined the University in 1984 after earning a PhD from the University of Maryland. She holds a BA in botany-bacteriology from Ohio Wesleyan University, an MAT in education from the University of Pittsburgh and an MS in zoology from Arizona State University.

Stamp replaces David G. Payne, who left in April to became associate vice president for graduate and professional education at Educational Testing Services in Princeton, N.J.
