Responding quickly, flexibly and strategically to emerging needs and opportunities
Gifts to the Binghamton Fund provide critical support that can be applied where needs and opportunities are greatest to strengthen schools, departments and programs all over campus. A strong Binghamton Fund is an engine driving strategic initiatives and a tangible measure of alumni appreciation for the University.
Michael Kozma ’18 (left) and Joshua Gonzalez ’18, pictured here during the 2018 Research Days on campus, were among more than 40 undergraduate students who received grants to complete research projects in the arts and humanities; nursing; social science; or science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Kozma, who now has a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering, focused on developing an inexpensive sensor to diagnose cancer. Gonzalez, who earned a bachelor’s degree in geography, studied the community impact of the University’s expansion and redevelopment in Johnson City, N.Y.
Thank you, Arthur Skodnek Foundation!
The University’s largest student-alumni networking forum each year is Metro Connections Night, the capstone of Binghamton in the City week. Students have the opportunity to meet with their choice of more than 100 alumni from a variety of fields; explore a multitude of careers under one roof, during one evening; and form meaningful relationships with mentors.
Thank you, Binghamton Fund donors!
