The Hardship Fund: A Message from President Stanley

To All Faculty and Staff,

In the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy and winter storm Athena I know that many of you are still struggling and I want to remind the campus community about an important resource available to you.

The Stony Brook Hardship Fund,  which was established through the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), can help Stony Brook University community members affected by a sudden and unexpected event.

Historically, this Fund has only been available to faculty and staff. However, I think it is important that we respond to disasters as an inclusive community and I have asked for the Fund to be opened to students in need as well.

For application details and a complete list of all the resources available to you, please visit the EAP website or call their office at 631-632-6085.

It's important to note that the Hardship Fund is entirely dependent on contributions from members of our campus community and is part of our It's About Us Faculty/Staff Campaign. Contributions can be made online or by sending a check payable to:
