General Information
Binghamton University's Libraries have released resources to help faculty, staff, and students "decolonize" their reading, which means putting less emphasis on Western classics. Additionally, the University took the symbolic step of declaring itself a "Predominantly White Institution", while also making a commitment to "audit" its library. The proposed audit has not yet been completed. No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. However, see developments below:
