Message from the President
Binghamton University grieves with the families of the victims and the city of Buffalo following the senseless shooting that killed 10 people and wounded others. The spirit of racism, hatred and acts of violence has once again shown its ugliness, destroying the lives of innocent people — targeted simply because of who they are, for what they represent as a people. There is no place in our society for such blatant racism, hatred and violence.
The emotional and psychological toll these incidents have on our communities is profound and members of our communities are silently suffering as they try to cope with these horrific events. It is time for us to come together as a nation and a campus to prevent this type of violence from becoming the norm; we must work toward seeing the humanity in each other.
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.
