SP3.3: Creation of Divisional/Dept. Staff with Diversity Responsibilities

Divisional diversity officers have been selected and will work with the chief diversity officer to oversee all aspects of diversity and inclusiveness initiatives with a primary focus on identifying, attracting and retaining highly qualified faculty, staff and students to Binghamton University. In addition the division of Administration received funding in the 2013-14 budget for this project, used in the following ways: funding was provided to the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (ODEI) for recruiting; a division staff member was identified to oversee diversity responsibilities; a fellowship program for underrepresented people to gain access to the division will be instituted; implement efforts will be made to hire underrepresented people in Physical Facilities. The Division of Student Affairs has established a diversity and inclusion programming council and seeded the council with program funds with a charge to promote one or more focused initiatives that can impact a barrier to postsecondary student diversity and inclusion.
