Forum events connect the Foundation and University to the community
About 180 people attended the Binghamton University Forum’s 42nd Annual Black-Tie Gala featuring musical entertainment by Robyn Adele Anderson ‘11, a vocalist with Postmodern Jukebox.
The event, held June 1 at Binghamton University’s Mountainview College in the Appalachian Collegiate Center, also included a dance floor, which was not part of the gala last year.
At a Forum luncheon April 30, the spotlight was on pathbreaking University research. Forum members and guests heard Binghamton Professor Eric Hoffman speak about “Interdisciplinary Research Centers Tackling Thorny Problems: Muscular Dystrophy, Opioids and Lyme.” Hoffman is also associate dean for research in the University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The Forum, originally established as the Harpur Forum in 1977 by the Binghamton University Foundation, is a membership organization that brings together people who share a commitment to advancing the University and the community. Members enjoy the Forum’s distinguished speaker series, annual black-tie gala, special tours of University facilities and other events.
