We offer a variety of ways for alumni to give back to Stony Brook. Opportunities include: being a mentor, hosting a site visit, providing a job shadow, hiring interns, supporting our undergraduate professional internship fund, or participating in our educational workshops.


Mentoring & Networking


Be a SBU Mentor

Micro-Mentoring Program

If you are interested having a one-time conversation to support current Stony Brook students, this program is for you.  A micro-mentor is a professional who volunteers his or her time to network, provide advice, and provide career insight for students and recent alumni. 

This program is about making connections and sharing information. Attend one of our workshops  to learn  more about this program.

Students and recent alumni are curious about the realities of the world of work.

Career decisions can be challenging with inaccurate and/or incomplete information. Share your career knowledge and advice to help students in their career development. The Alumni Career section is intended for SBU students and alumni to acquire career knowledge and get advice from experienced alumni working in various career fields.

Student Professional Development Fund



Support our Fund

The Student Professional Development Fund  was created to help undergraduate students take advantage of career-related professional development opportunities.

The number and size of the awards depend upon the number of applications, the relevance of the proposed activity to the student's career goals, and the amount of funding available. Funding is made possible by the generous gifts of parents, students, alumni, employers/industry partners and friends of Stony Brook University.
