About the Distinguished Alumni Award
Established in 1983, the Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes and pays tribute to
outstanding Stony Brook University alumni whose exceptional achievements and careers
reflect the highest values embraced and promoted by both Stony Brook University and
the Stony Brook University Alumni Association.
The Distinguished Alumni Award is the highest and most prestigious award the Stony
Brook Alumni Association honors to its alumni.
With the ongoing pandemic, we decided to take pause and hold off on the announcement
until a time when we can celebrate and recognize our honoree safely and most appropriately
together. Stay tuned!
