The mission of Stony Brook University—to advance our community and the world through knowledge and discovery—is lived through the activities of our core schools, colleges and programs. Across our 12 schools and colleges, our NCAA Division 1 athletics program, and the initiatives of the Staller Center for the Arts, we deliver an accessible world-class education, an incomparably dynamic student experience, and transformative research and medical care. By supporting their individual efforts, we lift up the university as a whole.
