Report coverThe Five Year Plan for 2008-13 sets ambitious goals.

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.

This report describes progress toward those goals in 2008-09. Stony Brook’s research programs expanded with the opening of the first building in the Research and Development Park, generous capital campaign gifts, and strengthened collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Development of Stony Brook Southampton continued, as did the ongoing enhancement of undergraduate education, campus life, health care services, and the many other contributions of a great university to the local, national, and international community.

The Five Year Plan and this report are available online and from the President’s Office. For more information contact Emily Thomas, Director of Planning and Institutional Research, at (631) 632-6265.
