DeFleur honored by Liberty Partnership

Recognizing her excellence as a leader, President Lois B. DeFleur has been honored by the Liberty Partnership program for her efforts to promote higher education opportunities for diverse and under-represented populations.

“This is a tremendous honor,” DeFleur said. “The partnership is a fine example of a collaboration in which our students are able to help younger students make positive choices. This is a win-win program for both the University and area school districts.”

The Liberty Partnership is a program that partners University students with students in local schools. The Liberty Partnership award, which was presented to DeFleur during a reception last month, was initially accepted on the president’s behalf by University students attending the statewide conference, Empire Promise Youth Summit: Building Our Intellectual and Economic Capacity.

Students from Binghamton, Newark Valley and Susquehanna Valley were among those in attendance at the reception, which was hosted by the University Liberty Partnership program.
