Diversity at Binghamton

At Binghamton, our dedication to academic excellence is inseparable from our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We strive to become a genuinely inclusive community where those with differing backgrounds and allegiances feel valued and can learn from one another. We want to be able to see beyond our own borders, where understanding the hopes, dreams, cultures and concerns of other people is the norm; where global awareness, respect and competence allow people of all backgrounds to work together effectively; where the richness of our diversity is embraced; and where knowledge grows through global interactions. We are committed to recruiting, selecting and retaining diverse and highly engaged faculty and staff who will sustain our culturally and ethnically diverse community. As a vibrant intellectual hub of students, faculty and staff, we represent every ethnicity and orientation and more than 100 countries around the world. We are committed to creating a culture of belonging and, recognizing that employees of all abilities bring different strengths to our campus, we work to accommodate their needs. As Binghamton employees, our faculty and staff are enriched by the connections they build with colleagues of different backgrounds, perspectives, ideas and experiences.
