Spark Discovery

Spark discovery for a changing world

Discovery drives Binghamton’s ability to keep pace with a fast-changing world and knowledge that grows exponentially every day. We must invest in research, scholarship and groundbreaking enterprises that connect disciplines, schools and colleges.

Your Opportunity

When you give to support faculty, you help recruit and retain the very best minds.  Making a gift to permanently endow a faculty position helps attract the kind of exceptional person who is equally at home in an undergraduate classroom and a highly productive research lab. The EXCELERATE Campaign’s goal is to grow the number of named positions so we can continue to compete against major R1 institutions for talent. Below are the starting levels for naming endowed positions in a field or program.  Contact us for more information. 

Endowed Chairs $3,000,000
Endowed Professors $1,500,000
Endowed Post-Doctoral Fellows (must provide full salary) $1,500,000
Endowed Faculty Fellows $500,000

Binghamton’s vibrant ecosystem of discovery — communities of scholars organized around specific areas of inquiry — is our distinctive research strength.  Your gifts to any of these areas help fuel research that addresses complex challenges affecting our world.
