To the Campus Community,

This has been a year of tumult and disruption, with the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns about social injustice dominating headlines both nationally and locally.

Unfortunately, social injustice and racist issues are all too real for members of our own campus community, particularly our African American, Asian and Asian American students, faculty and staff. We have experienced an increase of anti-Asian and other racist sentiment since the start of the pandemic, and it has only increased since the killing of George Floyd and others. Members of our campus community also have been subjected to hate-filled Zoom bombing due to their ethnicity, study of religious beliefs or gender.

Dear Campus Community,

Being dedicated to enriching the lives of people through Binghamton University’s core values of unity, identity and excellence, we recognize the strength and richness of the diversity among our campus community. The commitment to creating an inclusive campus where everyone feels a sense of belonging and each person’s contributions is valued, is one that is continuous and must be reaffirmed daily.
