GREEN IS OUR COMMITMENT
At Binghamton University, green isn’t just our school color, it’s a commitment to our planet and to future generations.
Across campus you will find a wide range of environmentally related policies, practices and academic offerings. They demonstrate our commitment to creating a sustainable community by engaging the campus and its partners and neighbors in programs that reduce our impact on the environment.
We encourage you to join these efforts and help Binghamton University go green!
