Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
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
The past three months have been very busy at Binghamton University. Much of the summer was spent preparing for the fall semester and welcoming our students back to campus. This class is a special one in the University’s history, as we are marking the University’s 75th anniversary this year...
In mid-September, the University held the formal opening of our new Violence, Abuse and Rape Crisis Center (VARCC) located on the third floor of Old Johnson Hall. The opening of the VARCC is part of the commitment I made to student groups in response to concerns about sexual violence and the campus climate that appeared in social media in the summer of 2020, and I am proud that our students were able to work with us to push for and design the VARCC.
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.
