About Binghamton University

History

Binghamton University (BU) was established in 1946 as Triple Cities College to serve the needs of local veterans returning from World War II. Established in Endicott, New York, the college was a branch of Syracuse University. When the college was incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) in 1950, it was renamed Harpur College, in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher and pioneer who settled in the Binghamton area. Of the four University Centers (Stony Brook, Albany, Buffalo and Binghamton), Binghamton was the first to join SUNY. In 1951, the college began an ambitious move to its current location in Vestal, New York. The 387-acre site was purchased from a local farmer, anticipating future growth for the school. Colonial Hall, the original building of the former campus, stands today as the Village of Endicott Visitor's Center. After Harpur was selected as one of the four university centers of SUNY in 1965, it was renamed State University of New York at Binghamton. As other schools were added, Harpur College retained its name as the liberal arts college core, and largest component, of the State University of New York at Binghamton. In 1992, the university adopted Binghamton University as its popular name; hence BU began replacing the commonly used nicknames of SUNY Binghamton and SUNY-B. Harpur College is still the largest of Binghamton University's constituent schools, with more than 60% undergraduate and graduate students.

Thomas J. Watson

Thomas J. Watson is an important figure in Binghamton's fabric. Having founded IBM in the greater Binghamton area, Watson viewed the region as an area of great potential. In the early 1940s he collaborated with a group of local leaders to initiate the creation of Triple Cities College (of Syracuse University), which would later become Harpur College, and finally Binghamton University. He donated land at and around the original IBM site in Endicott, NY, where the school called home for just a few years. The campus broke ground at its current location in Vestal, NY, in 1954. In 1967, the School of Advanced Technology was established -- the precursor to the Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science that was founded in 1983. Thomas John Watson, Sr. ...

Noteworthy research, programs and centers

Binghamton University is specifically designated an advanced research institution and has recently been declared a New York State Center of Excellence, which will help provide considerable funding for many of the University's research projects. The following are highlights of some of the research conducted at the University:

  • Philosophy, Interpretation, and Culture (PIC), founded in 1979 by philosophy professor Stephen David Ross, is a unique autonomous interdisciplinary program leading to MA and PhD degrees in philosophy. The program explicitly focuses on the issue of disciplinary boundaries and promotes discussion about intelligibility, legitimacy, and disciplinariness itself from a historical and institutional angle. Currently, 60-70 students are enrolled in PIC; 5-10 PhD degrees are granted each year. PIC is associated with the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies in Philosophy, Interpretation, and Culture (CPIC), which among other things encourages community involvement.
  • The Evolutionary Studies Program (EvoS) is one of the first programs in the country that explicitly seeks to apply evolutionary insights to all areas of inquiry, including the humanities.[citation needed] The program promotes traditional evolutionary studies in biology, but also has members who study such disciplines and topics as the arts, literature, laughter and education from evolutionary perspectives. The program is headed by biology and anthropology professor David Sloan Wilson.
  • Stirrings Still: The International Journal of Existential Literature was founded in 2003 by members of Binghamton University's English Department.

In addition, Binghamton faculty often develop cross-disciplinary connections that become permanent working relationships. As a result, many of these connections have been formalized through Binghamton University’s Center for Excellence, through organized research centers and institutes for advanced studies. These organizations offer equipment and expertise that may be accessed by faculty across the disciplines and by members of the community who need specialized services, and one of the University's most important links to the larger local, regional and global communities of which it is a vital part. The University's organized research centers include: Stephen David Ross (1935- ) is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Interpretation, and Culture, and of Comparative Literature at Binghamton University. ...

Athletics

About BU Athletics

Binghamton University has been a member of the NCAA since near its inception to the SUNY system. Originally a Division III school, President Lois Defluer spear headed an aggressive campaign to become Division I. In 1999, Binghamton University completed that transition faster than any other school in history. Today, they are a member of the America East Conference. Alongside the transition to DI, the addition of the Events Center for basketball, track and tennis has bolstered the program. In 2007, a turf field for soccer and lacrosse, as well as a championship-capable baseball field, will be completed. The America East Conference is a college athletic conference whose members are located mainly in the northeastern United States. ...

  • Binghamton's mascot is the Bearcat, formerly the Colonials prior to the transition to Division I.
  • The student section is organized into a group called the, BU ZOO. Binghamton's basketball team is known for consistently attracting the largest home crowds in the America East.

Rivalry

The Binghamton Bearcats' primary rival is the SUNY Albany Great Danes, who are sometimes called "The Big Purple Growl". This is largely because they are both members of the America East Confrence, as well as the SUNY system. Their geographic proximity has lead to the name, The I-88 Rivalry. Other rivals typically depend on the sport, but include: Cornell University, Boston University and University of Vermont University at Albany Sapientia et sua et docendi causa (Wisdom both for its own sake and for the sake of teaching) The University at Albany, located in Albany, New York, USA, is a university center of the State University of New York. ...
