Commencement Graduate Ceremony Saturday, May 16, 2009 Undergraduate Ceremonies Sunday, May 17, 2009


Welcome President Lois B. DeFleur, the Binghamton University Council, faculty, alumni and students of Binghamton University, State University of New York, are honored by your presence at the Spring 2009 Commencement Ceremonies.

Binghamton University Events Center May 16–17, 2009


Message from President Lois B. DeFleur

G

raduates, parents and special guests: Today, we celebrate our students’ accomplishments. Commencement signals the culmination of their academic endeavors at Binghamton and we are proud of their many successes. Our graduates leave Binghamton with a strong foundation for the future. During their years of study at Binghamton, the Class of 2009 has had a broad range of experiences, and I am impressed by their academic achievements. Today’s graduates have gained recognition for their work as scholars and researchers, and have earned prestigious awards — they are Boren and Fulbright scholars and they have won highly competitive federal grants from the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. In addition, this graduating class has distinguished itself through volunteerism and community service. They have raised funds for cancer awareness and supported our local food bank; provided counseling and other relief for the victims of Hurricane Katrina; and provided hours of volunteer work in local schools, hospitals and community organizations. Most impressively, they offered their support and concern for the local community when it needed it most, following the tragic shooting in Binghamton on April 3. Because of the Class of 2009’s consistent involvement and work on behalf of others, Binghamton University earned a place on the U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. This class also has benefited from the University’s growth in programs and facilities. In the last four years, we have added a new Biotechnology Building, where students have unique opportunities to pursue hands-on research with faculty mentors in such cutting-edge fields as nanomaterials science and flexible electronics technology; and, at the University Downtown Center, our students have opportunities to work directly with local government, social agencies and healthcare providers, helping to solve the challenges our communities face. International experiences, such as study-abroad, as well as interaction with students from other nations, have helped members of this Class of 2009 broaden their educational and cultural horizons, while internships with leading firms and organizations have provided valuable real-world experiences. Binghamton continues to receive accolades for its academic excellence and the achievements of its students. For the sixth consecutive year, The Fiske Guide to Colleges, in its 2009 edition, has recognized Binghamton University as “the premier public university in the Northeast.” Today’s graduates have helped the University gain this reputation for excellence, yet credit also must go to the families and friends whose support and guidance have encouraged our students to take advantage of the many opportunities at Binghamton. Graduates, thank you for choosing the State University of New York at Binghamton. Thanks, also, to the families of our bright and talented students for entrusting their education to Binghamton University. We are pleased and proud to launch them into the next phase of their life’s journey, confident that they are well prepared for the future and that their accomplishments will be significant. Sincerely, Lois B. DeFleur President, Binghamton University

Honorary Degrees

Honorary Degrees Binghamton University, in addition to awarding baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral degrees for work completed at the University, looks outside itself to identify individuals who, by their accomplishments, represent what the University values and strives to instill in its graduates. It may be scholarly attainment, it may be artistic excellence, it may be a life of outstanding service. These are exceptional individuals in all fields of endeavor who serve as role models and as inspirations for students and faculty alike. It is for these reasons that Binghamton University recognizes them with an honorary degree from the State University of New York — Doctor of Humane Letters, Doctor of Law or Doctor of Science. In so doing, the University not only celebrates their achievements, but also claims them proudly as having a special relationship with Binghamton University.

Lawrence J. Schorr ’75, ’77 After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English from Binghamton, Lawrence J. Schorr continued his education at Syracuse University, receiving his juris doctorate in 1981. He began practicing law that year at Levene, Gouldin & Thompson, LLP as a corporate lawyer and became a partner in 1985. In 1988, he left the firm to become president of Resource Recycling Technologies, Inc., an American Stock Exchange company that he sold to a NYSE Fortune 500 company in 1995. Schorr then became president of a privately held group of plastics manufacturing companies and in 2004 acquired and became chief executive officer of Ohio-based Boltaron Performance Products, LLC, a large PVC plastic sheet manufacturer. In 2000, while still running the plastics company, Schorr returned to Levene, Gouldin & Thompson to become its administrative partner, then managing partner in 2007. He now serves as special counsel.

A staunch supporter of Binghamton University, Schorr is president of the Binghamton University Foundation, vicepresident of the Binghamton Forum and a Binghamton University Athletic Club board member. He is a member of the Harpur College Advisory Council and supports faculty and their research through the Harpur College Faculty Development Fund and the School of Management Faculty Development Fund. He also serves on the Broome Community College Foundation Board of Directors, as chair of the board of the Goodwill Theater, as an officer of the Southern Tier Opportunities Coalition and as a board member of Metro-Interfaith Housing. He and his wife, Jennifer Brink Schorr MBA ’81, former Binghamton University registrar and current special assistant to the provost, are generous philanthropists to the University and the Binghamton community at large.

Mario J. Paniccia ’88 Mario J. Paniccia earned a bachelor of science degree in physics from Binghamton University in 1988 and a doctorate in solid state physics from Purdue University in 1994. With over 65 patents issued or pending, he currently directs a research group for Intel Corporation, developing silicon-based photonic building blocks for future use in enterprise and data center communications. Paniccia has worked in many areas of optical technologies during his career at Intel, including optical testing for leading edge microprocessors, optical communications and optical interconnects. His team’s pioneering activities in silicon photonics have led to many firsts, including development of the first silicon modulator with bandwidth greater than 1 GHz, in 2004, and then the first at 40 Gb/s, in 2007. His team also boasts the first continuous-wave silicon laser breakthrough

in 2005, and, together with the University of California at Santa Barbara, the world’s first Hybrid Silicon Laser in 2006. Paniccia has been recognized with numerous awards and in November 2004 was named by Scientific American as one of the top 50 researchers for his team’s work in silicon photonics. In October 2008, Paniccia was named by R&D Magazine as Scientist of the Year ­— an award given to those whose accomplishments rise above the norm — for his team’s pioneering research. He has published numerous papers, including three that appeared in Nature, three Nature Photonics papers and three book chapters. Paniccia is a senior member of the IEEE, a non-profit organization that is the world’s leading professional association for the advancement of technology, and a fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA).

2009 Dual-Dipoma Program

Dual-Diploma Program These innovative bachelor-degree programs prepare students with high-level substantive knowledge and analytical skills for careers requiring global perspectives. Participating Turkish students typically spend freshman and junior years at their home campus and their sophomore and senior years abroad at Binghamton University. The program exposes the students to two cultures and two educational systems. As a result, students will receive a diploma from each school. The State University of New York’s dual-diploma program with Turkey received the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for International Exchange Partnerships in January 2007 from the Institute of International Education.

You are now a member of the Alumni Association as well, a special group of more than 98,000 graduates across the globe. Membership provides benefits to you at no cost. The Alumni Association is your lifetime link with the University and fellow graduates. Every year, we sponsor a number of events across the country, bringing alumni together by region, class year or special interest. Homecoming Weekend, scheduled for Oct. 2-4 this year, invites graduates to return to campus so they can catch up with friends and celebrate milestones. B-connected, our online community — accessible through binghamton.edu/alumni — can help you stay in touch with classmates and tap into the Alumni Career Network. You are in an unique position to assist the University. Many alumni serve as volunteers, helping attract bright young minds to Binghamton and providing students with career advice to compete in a fast-paced global economy. In addition, your financial generosity can help the University remain competitive for years to come and preserve the value of your degree. Donations to the Binghamton Fund support powerful, essential and immediate needs such as student conferences and travel, undergraduate research awards, laboratory equipment, art supplies, computers, faculty research support, student-alumni networking initiatives and visiting speakers. We wish you the best in your future endeavors and hope you’ll remain connected to your alma mater.

Academic Regalia

Academic Regalia

he history of academic regalia extends back to the earliest European universites in the 11th century, where it was a way of setting the academic community apart from the world of manual labor. Medieval universities established strict rules of dress, both for university ceremonies and for regular classes. Although few codes survive, Oxford University’s ordinances illustrate the regulations. Puffed sleeves, colored hose and pointed shoes were prohibited; the well-dressed Oxford student of the time wore a black sleeveless gown to the heels and a hood of white fur. In the United States, there was only a limited use of academic dress until the 1870s, when caps and gowns began to be used fairly regularly on ceremonial occasions. By 1890, students at many colleges wore some kind of academic dress at commencement, and in 1895 a code of academic dress was established by representatives of the leading institutions. With some changes, it is still in force today. The shapes, colors and trim of gowns, hoods and caps indicate the academic degree, the school granting the degree and the subject of study. The higher the degree, the more elaborate the costume. Gowns, for example, are distinguished by the shape of the sleeves; bachelors’ gowns have pointed sleeves, masters’ gowns have sleeves cut square at the back and doctors’ gowns also have velvet facing and three velvet bars on the sleeves that are either black or in a color indicating the degree: dark blue for

A

philosophy, light blue for education, golden yellow for science, lemon yellow for library science, pink for music, orange for engineering, brown for fine arts, white for arts, letters and humanities and copper for economics. Hoods are distinguished by length. They are lined with the official color(s) of the institution conferring the degree and trimmed with a color indicating the subject in which the degree is granted. Bachelors’ hoods are three feet long, with a two-inch trim of velvet. Masters’ hoods are three and onehalf feet, with a three-inch trim. Doctors’ hoods are four feet long, with side panels and a five-inch trim. The cap or mortarboard is black, with a long tassel fastened to the top. The tassel may be black or the color appropriate to the subject; however, only doctors’ caps may have a tassel of gold thread. It is customary for graduates to move the tassels from right to left after degrees are awarded. The colors of the State University of New York are blue and gold, and may be seen in the hoods of all those who will receive the doctorate today, including honorary degree recipients. The members of the Binghamton University Council, marching at the head of the platform party, wear special regalia in the Binghamton University local colors of green and white, with the State University blue and gold in their hoods. These local colors are also reflected in the green-on-white Binghamton University seal that is imprinted on the class hoods that our baccalaureate recipients wear over their gowns.

The University Mace

gift of the Class of 1993, the University Mace is representative of the magisterial authority of the University as an institution of higher learning. Such symbols go far back into antiquity, their use proclaiming the power of the holder. Now, however, the Mace stands for the pre-eminence of the world of knowledge. Professor John Thomson of the Department of Studio Art undertook the commission by the Class of 1993 for the

University Mace. Nearly three feet long, it is made of hand-turned, polished walnut. The spherical head has two inset cast-bronze facets in the shape of medallions. One bears the seal of Binghamton University. The other carries a high-relief rendering of Pegasus, the flying horse of Greek mythology, which as a part of the seal symbolizes the University’s aspirations for its future.

The Binghamton University Commencement ceremonies are a tradition in which we recognize the achievements of our students. We would like to extend our appreciation to the members of the Commencement Expediters’ Committee and other individuals who make these events possible. Their dedication, creativity and overall efforts produce a memorable occasion for us all.
