Message from President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD

Welcome to Stony Brook University

Here you will find a place where students and professors work together to answer questions and solve problems that are facing the world today … where collaborations across academic disciplines, and with our research partners at Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, create discoveries that change lives.

You will see a fully engaged student body whose enthusiasm in cheering our sports teams is matched only by their dedication to their studies and their selfless efforts to help the community. You will meet a world-class faculty whose academic and research activities encompass the most important issues of our time — brilliant scholars whose passion to generate and transmit new knowledge creates the foundation for all of our endeavors.

It is my great honor to be part of this wonderfully diverse campus. I am constantly impressed with the talent, intelligence, and ingenuity of our students, faculty, and staff as we continue on our exciting journey of research, education, and discovery. I invite you to explore our site and get to know Stony Brook. You will be amazed at what you discover here.
