Binghamton University faculty, alumni and administrators gathered May 1 to honor professors Carrol Coates, Gerald Kadish and Zoya Pavlovskis-Petit for their 50 years each of teaching at Harpur College.
The event recognized the leadership of the three in shaping the core values of the institution throughout their careers.
Welcome to Harpur College of Arts and Sciences. With our three divisions – fine arts and humanities, science and mathematics, and social sciences – we are the largest of Binghamton University's six schools, boasting more than 8,100 undergraduate students and nearly 1,100 graduate students. However, we remain committed to our guiding philosophy established when Harpur College was founded: "From Breadth through Depth to Perspective."
The outstanding liberal arts education we offer provides all of this: a breadth in the liberal arts, a depth of knowledge in any subject (or subjects) you might choose, and the opportunity to open your mind to new ideas and perspectives. | Read more

The program, which brings students together for a day of poetry readings, was established as a memorial to Robert Pawlikowski, a published poet, creative writing instructor and campus administrative assistant. This year's guest poet is Professor Liz Rosenberg.
To the uninitiated, the birds all look the same — shimmering black feathers, with eyes, beaks and feet to match. They sound the same, too, their calls collapsing into cacophony as they rise and fall on the wing. Not so for behavioral ecologist Anne Clark. | Read more
