Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
“Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
Welcome to the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
In partnership with the campus community, DEI aims to foster a diverse and inclusive culture that is welcoming for all students, faculty, staff and the Greater Binghamton community.
Message from the President
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.
Message from the Vice President
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.
Books, movies, podcasts and more to help you better understand and combat racism
As we all try to combat systemic racism and oppression in our daily lives, here is a selection of books, movies, podcasts, websites, documentaries and more that can help you better understand the history of racial injustice against African Americans in the United States. This is an evolving list and we welcome your suggestions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
