  • We have just learned that this week our campus community experienced several racist incidents. These offensive incidents do not represent who we are as a campus community. In fact, they are antithetical to our core values.

    We do not tolerate acts of discrimination, hatred or bigotry, whether they are spoken or written as acts of vandalism. We, members of the administration and members of the community at large strongly condemn racist and offensive acts of any kind. Personally, and as a campus community, we reject these acts, we will call them out as long as they persist and we will continue to support the victims of racist acts.

    We are a diverse and inclusive community made of people from a myriad of backgrounds who come together to learn, discover and serve; we will continue to celebrate and recognize the beauty of our rich diversity. These deplorable and disgusting actions go against our campus values and only serve to divide and show the ugliness of some, rather than unite our community.

    We encourage any individual who requires support to deal with these incidents to contact any of these offices for assistance:
    • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at 607-777-4775 or odei@binghamton.edu
    • Multicultural Resource Center at 607-777-4472 or mrc.binghamton.edu
    • CARE Team at 607-777-2804
    • Dean of Students at 607-777-2804 or dos@binghamton.edu
    • University Ombudsman at 607-777-2388
    • University Counseling Center at 607-777-2772

    Moreover, if you believe you have experienced discrimination or harassment, you are encouraged to file a complaint at the link below.

    Racist incidents will not be tolerated at Binghamton University, and we will continue to look for ways to ensure our campus is continuing to be welcoming and inclusive.

  • Workshops

  • Join Myra Sabir, associate professor of human development, as she takes us through the Life Writing Course from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursdays from March 11 to April 29.

    Life Writing is a series of eight transformative workshops in which participants write through their life story, working through unresolved emotional memories. This evidence-based, award-winning writing process has a long history for improving psychological, physical, economic and social health across race, class, gender, age, culture and ethnicity. The process increases coherence in the life story which produces coherence in the self. Coherence in the self produces a healthy mind, a healthy body and the capacity for healthy relationships. This workshop series will place social workers in a stronger position to support their clients with deeper presence and greater emotional availability.
    Most in this field use this kind of life review to reduce pathology; we use it to promote human flourishing.

    This is an eight-week online course offered via Zoom; all sessions must be completed for Social Work Contact Hours: 19 contact hours, $399.
