    Now in its second year, #BingCollects is a joint pop-up exhibition project between the Binghamton University Art Museum and the Libraries’ Special Collections.

  • Lithium-ion batteries are found in many consumer e-transportation devices due to their small size, power output and versatility. Binghamton University is heavily invested in researching emerging energy storage technology related to Li-ion batteries. While our researchers are busy creating future energy solutions, consumer-grade lithium batteries are plentiful and present hazards that must be managed for the safety of all campus community members.

    All e-transportation devices powered by a lithium-ion battery such as e-bikes, e-scooters and e-hoverboards brought to, stored or charged on campus must be registered. There is no fee to do so, and the process is simple. Note that you will need to provide photos of each device and battery. You can access the registration form via phone or computer at the link below. This registration does not apply to battery-operated devices such as — but not limited to — laptops, desktop computers, iPads, tablets, cell phones, ADA Mobility Devices, etc.

    Binghamton University has established several safety guidelines for e-transportation users. To learn more about the policy, go to: https://www.binghamton.edu/operations/policies/policy-422.html

  • SUNY System Administration currently has a Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention grant with the NYS Office of Mental Health. Through this grant, SUNY offers free access to "Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper" training to students, faculty, staff and other SUNY community members. The training is free until May 31.

    QPR is an evidence-based emergency mental health intervention for people at risk of suicide. The goal of QPR is to recognize a suicide crisis, interrupt it and direct the person to appropriate care.

    Like CPR, QPR works to increase an at-risk individual's chance of survival. People trained in QPR are taught to recognize the warning signs of suicide, which include depression, expressions of hopelessness and talk of suicide. Participants are then taught how to respond.

    The training course only takes an hour and could help save a life. If you are interested in becoming certified in QPR, follow the below instructions:

    1. Follow the link below,
    2. Type in "SUNY" for the organization code;
    3. Click "Create Training Account";
    4. Log in to the QPR Gatekeeper website at: http://www.qprtraining.com

  • Sustainability

  • The Binghamton Move Out Project (MOP) is a volunteer-run initiative aimed at diverting waste from the landfill and giving back to the community during spring move-out, by donating items from students moving out of their college housing. Last year the team was able to divert over 18,000 pounds of waste from the landfill, including clothes, food, books, electronics and more.

    To donate, take a look at MOP's accepted items list, at: moveoutproject.org/donate/accepted-items
    The program can only accept what we can get rid of, so it's important to review this closely before donating.

    Next, drop off your items at a bin: From May 6-14, there will be bins located at the following locations: C4 Multipurpose Room, CIW Iroquois Commons, Appalachian Dining Hall, Hinman Dining Hall, Hillside Commons and the Susquehanna Coffee House. Students can drop their items in a bin at any time when the buildings are open.

    Donations can also be dropped off at an outdoor collection site: On May 8-9 from 2-5 p.m. there will be five outdoor collection stations on campus: outside of the CIW, Hinman and Appalachian dining halls, one on the Dickinson quad, and one at Newing between Delaware and Broome.

  • The Binghamton Move Out Project (MOP) is looking for volunteers to help with their annual Spring Move Out donation initiative. Volunteers are needed for collecting, sorting and distributing the items from May 6 until the end of May. Volunteer shifts are flexible.

    MOP is an official project of the Susquehanna Group of the Sierra Club and is entirely volunteer-run. Each spring, MOP collects items from students moving out of their college housing and donates them to various nonprofit organizations in the Greater Binghamton area with the goal of diverting waste from the landfill and giving back to the community.

    In 2023, the 18,795 pounds that MOP collected from Binghamton University students was donated to over 25 local nonprofits, schools and churches. This year, the team has a goal of collecting 25,000 pounds of items for donation.

    Those who are interested can fill out the volunteer form at the link below, or contact binghamtonmoveout@gmail.com for more information.
