We are Community Logo

Stony Brook University’s mission, vision and very essence are built on the principles of providing equal access to world-class education in a caring environment, where we respect and embrace our differences, take responsibility to protect our local communities, and practice civility at all times. We promote inclusion, welcome freedom of expression, encourage civil discourse, and take a firm stand against divisiveness and insensitivity in all venues and forms.  This site – Caring, Respect, Civility – provides resources and support to help us all remember these values and practice these behaviors. This is more important than ever in today’s challenging and changing educational, political and social climate. Together, we can stay Stony Brook Strong, and continue to build and role model the culture that is the hallmark of our University.
