Binghamton University launches community resource website
Binghamton University’s Office of Communications and Marketing has launched a website to connect community members with the resources available on campus.
The website, known as BU Connects, offers a searchable databank that allows community members access to information about the wide variety of University programs, events and projects. Divided into 14 categories ranging from arts to youth programs, BU Connects also provides a list of corporate and professional development programs that are of special interest to local business and industry.
In addition to providing information about campus projects and programs, BU Connects provides access to campus expertise through the University’s speaker’s bureau. An interactive form allows community, school or business groups to place their requests online. The form is then directed to staff in the University’s Communications and Marketing Office where the request is matched with interested faculty, students or staff.
BU Connects also allows the campus community to add programs to the directory. A form located on the homepage allows program coordinators to select the category they wish to be listed under and offers them the opportunity to provide the necessary program and contact information. This mechanism allows easy access to the directory by campus members so resource information will always be current.
