Harvey G. Stenger Jr. (ChemE '79)
Harvey G. Stenger Jr., one of the top leaders at the University at Buffalo, has been named president of Binghamton University by the State University of New York board of trustees.
A native of Auburn, near Syracuse, Stenger earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Cornell University in 1979 and his doctorate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983.
Stenger, interim provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at UB since April, was appointed Tuesday to become the seventh president at Binghamton.
"I am honored to have been chosen as Binghamton University's next president," Stenger said in a statement. "Binghamton's focus on student success and high quality academic and research programs make it one of the finest public universities in the United States."
