Binghamton University President Doctor Harvey Stenger is predicting big things for Johnson City as well as university students.

Stenger, in his State of the University address, said he sees a busy, vibrant Johnson City in the next five years as a result of the new pharmacy school and relocation of the nursing school to the Village.

Stenger says he’s looking to not to maintain the undergraduate numbers, but to add students in the graduate programs.

He also looks to add master programs in physical, speech and occupational therapy at the nursing school, build on diversity on campus.. bringing more international students to Vestal and to move into the area of data science for research and education fields.

The University President says B.U. wants to keep residents in the Village as well as the elected officials informed of all future plans.  Those plans could even include the University taking over blighted properties and repurposing them.

Many of the outlined goals will rely on the University being able to secure funding either in the public or private sector.
