Shawn Heilbron Named Director of Athletics

To the Campus Community:

Today it is my pleasure to announce to the campus community and to all friends and neighbors of Stony Brook University that after a nationwide search conducted by a professional search firm, Shawn Heilbron, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Advancement at Oregon State University, has agreed to join Stony Brook University as our new Director of Athletics. Our Athletics program has been on a very strong trajectory and we know this will continue under Shawn’s leadership.

The university press release will tell you more about Shawn and why he is our top choice to lead Stony Brook Athletics. We look forward to introducing him to the community when he arrives on campus this summer.

I’d like to extend sincere thanks to the search committee, led by Senior Vice President for Administration Barbara Chernow, for their efforts in expediting this process.

Samuel L. Stanley Jr., M.D.
