An exclusive interview with Harvey G. Stenger Jr., the seventh president of Binghamton University. Stenger has been interim provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University at Buffalo since April 2011.
A native of Auburn, N.Y., Stenger arrived at the University at Buffalo in 2006 as dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He is a chemical engineer by training, earned his bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Cornell University in 1979 and his doctorate in the same discipline from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983. He holds registration as a professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Prior to joining the administration at UB, Stenger was a professor at Lehigh University's College of Engineering and Applied Science, where he also served as dean for six years and served terms as co-chair of the Department of Chemical Engineering and director of the Environmental Studies Center. While dean, the college launched an award-winning Integrated Product Development program, expanded cooperative education programs, and received the largest gift ever made to Lehigh—$25 million—from P. C. Rossin to establish an endowment and name the P. C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Science.
While at Lehigh, Stenger also oversaw the founding of the Pennsylvania Technology Alliance, which promotes economic and technology development. His research has focused on hydrogen production, selective catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides, mercury reaction pathways, catalytic destruction of chlorinated hydrocarbons, and fuel cell modeling and optimization.
Under Stenger's leadership at the University of Buffalo, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences significantly improved student quality and program rankings at the undergraduate and graduate levels. During his tenure, the size and quality of the engineering faculty increased and the school recruited to its faculty two members of the National Academy of Engineering.
Stenger has led the engineering school's ongoing $100 million capital campaign, which generated support for the construction of the new 130,000-square-foot Barbara and Jack Davis Hall. In partnership with UB's dean of the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Stenger also launched UB's innovative new program in biomedical engineering. He has enhanced the school's student and faculty diversity, and expanded its international programs in Turkey, India, and France.
Stenger is a member of the boards of the Buffalo-Area Engineering Awareness for Minorities and the UB Foundation. He has been honored as a distinguished alumnus of Cornell University; has received multiple awards at Lehigh for student advising, excellence in teaching and unusual promise of professional achievement; and been recognized in Buffalo and from professional associations for his teaching, mentorship, and public and professional service.
Stenger will move to the Greater Binghamton area with his wife, Cathy. His daughter Elisabeth lives, works, and goes to graduate school in New York City, and his daughter Hannah is in graduate school at UB. His state salary will be $385,000, and he will be authorized to receive $50,000 in supplemental compensation from Binghamton University's allocation of funds within the Research Foundation. Since there is no presidential residence at Binghamton, he will also receive a $60,000 annual housing allowance.
