Global Migration of People and Ideas

Working Group Image

The study of migration comes at an important time at Stony Brook University with our diverse student population; important milestones at SBU related to migration; and historical, cultural, and environmental legacies. All scholars interviewed by this working group view migration as a rich and vital field of study in the SBU undergraduate and graduate curriculums.

In our rapidly globalizing world, the global migration of people and ideas is an ever-present reality, constantly shaping daily lives and experiences across the world in critical ways.

By expanding its investment in themes of migration, Stony Brook University will:

  • remain relevant, better prepare our students for contributing to the world outside the University
  • attract and retain skilled faculty and support cutting-edge research
  • contribute to important policy decisions at the local, state, and national level
  • open new opportunities for critical engagement with the local community
  • engender multiple broader societal impacts
