Priorities for supporting student excellence

  • Health and well-being
  • Academic success
  • Impactful co-curricular experiences
  • Inclusive campus community
  • Community-building

Health and wellness

Binghamton believes that supporting our community's well-being extends beyond providing high-quality health and counseling options for students. We meet students, faculty and staff where they are — in their residence halls, offices or student groups — to provide support and education that will lead to better productivity and happier, healthier people.

Collaborating for academic success

Offices within the Division of Student Affairs work directly with faculty to provide students with valuable experiences that augment and enhance what they learn in the traditional classroom.

Inclusive access and support

Binghamton University welcomes diverse perspectives, reflective of the world around us. We are committed to making sure that our students, staff and faculty are not only diverse, but also feel welcomed by an inclusive campus community.

 Student Affairs programs like the Educational Opportunity Program and Student Support Services provide financial assistance and a range of advising and academic support services to students from disadvantaged backgrounds. These and other offices, such as Services for Students with Disabilities, are critical to the success of under-represented and disadvantaged students at Binghamton.

Our Department for Student Transition and Success offers programs and resources to support students' academic, personal and professional development beginning when they first arrive on campus and carrying throughout their collegiate experience.

Student and staff recognition

We believe in the importance of recognizing the hard work and achievements of our students and staff.

Held annually, the Binghamton University Student Awards honor and recognize the outstanding achievements of our students who shine in and out of the classroom.

A staff recognition committee works year-round to create a pervasive culture of appreciation for the hard work, long hours and passion for supporting students exemplified by our staff.


Building community

Binghamton prides itself as a beautiful, welcoming residential campus, and we're continually investing in improving the spaces our students live, learn and play. From state-of-the-art recreational facilities to renovated residence and dining halls to gathering places like the University Union, we strive to make campus a place people want to be, which results in lasting friendships, convenient networking and a resilient Bearcat spirit.
