Proud to have won the Roosevelt Institute's 2017 Best Chapter Award!
The Roosevelt Institute is an undergraduate, non-partisan policy organization with over 130 chapters throughout the United States. As an active chapter of the national Roosevelt Institute Campus Network and a student group chartered by the Binghamton University Student Association, BingRoosevelt is the only policy organization at Binghamton University.
Our goal is to improve the local community through policy creation and discourse, with a specific focus on the general Broome County area and New York State. We provide our members with a platform to voice their thoughts and to develop unique solutions to local issues in an effort to create positive change in our area. Our members research, write, and advocate for these policy solutions throughout the community.
Interested in helping your local community? Have ideas on how to solve issues in Broome County, New York State, or even the United States? Want to write public policy and then promote it amongst organizations and government officials? Stop by our next General Body Meeting! We have meetings every Tuesday at 7:30pm in UU103.
