City of Binghamton, New York

Town Gown Advisory Board

The Town Gown Advisory Board (TGAB) was established to help promote positive relations between Binghamton University and the residents of the surrounding municipalities and neighborhoods impacted by the presence of students. The board is composed of City government officials, City Council members, community members, University administrators and faculty, student leaders, representatives of neighborhood associations and community based organizations, and more. Deputy Mayor Jared M. Kraham and Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs Randall Edouard co-chair the board. 

The Town Gown Advisory Board holds three large meetings annually, which are open to the public.

In addition to these three Board-wide meetings, the TGAB breaks up into different subcommittees to create strategies and proposals to help improve the off-campus community. The subcommittees are:

  • Sub-Committee for Promoting and Cultivating Positive Community Engagement
  • Sub-Committee for Student Housing
  • Sub-Committee for Transportation and Parking
  • Sub-Committee for Dangerous Drinking/Underage Drinking
  • Sub-Committee for Safety
