In its first 50 years, Stony Brook University grew from a fledgling teachers college to one of America’s great research universities. In the next five years, Stony Brook will emerge as a multicampus institution and take the lead in education and scholarship for the 21st century with an interdisciplinary approach, an international focus, and increased prominence in the arts. Stony Brook will continue to grow and build a campus community that promotes student success, both on campus and after graduation. Eco-literacy and environmentally sound practices will contribute to a sustainable future. The University will also continue to develop its role as greater Long Island’s research university, serving the region with state-of-the-art health care, supporting a robust regional economy, and contributing to a vital regional community. An ambitious fundraising effort will augment state and other funding sources to support these priorities.
