DEI welcomes all new and returning students back to campus.
August is an exciting time at Binghamton University as we onboard new faculty and staff, move in new and returning students and begin fall classes. We also kick off the fall semester with B-Welcome Week!
B-Welcome Week runs from Aug. 16–28 and celebrates the beginning of the new academic year with engaging activities, events and open houses to welcome all our students to campus.
Throughout August and the beginning of September the Multicultural Resource Center, Q Center and UDiversity Educational Institute join with other campus departments and all cultural and LGBTQ+ student organizations to host B-Welcome and Intercultural Welcome events.
We look forward to seeing you!

BINGHAMTON UNIVERSITY IS EXCITED TO CONTINUE THE COMMON READ EXPERIENCE FOR ALL INCOMING FIRST-YEAR STUDENTS.
For this year’s selection the Book Selection Committee, comprised of Binghamton University faculty and staff, reviewed all of the available options from Penguin Random House around the topic of Big Data and selected Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O’Neil.
In Weapons of Math Destruction, data scientist Cathy O’Neil explores how the algorithms that regulate our lives in ever-increasing ways are often flawed and discriminatory.
It’s a timely and engaging book in which the award-winning author Cathy O’Neil draws on her expertise as a mathematician and data analyst to illuminate the ways in which Big Data is misused to the peril of our civic freedoms, educational and professional opportunities, careers and finances.
