Local Government Relations

As Long Island's largest single site-employer, Stony Brook University is a principle driver of the Long Island and regional economy.  Therefore, we interact closely with local elected officials and governments and consider ourselves an integral part of the local community.

The University has fostered partnerships with Suffolk County and the Town of Brookhaven that have enabled us to communicate on issues important to neighboring residents and business owners.  Our local elected officials are also regular visitors to campus and we’re appreciative of their interaction with University administration and students.
