Fall Planning Update
Apri 28, 2020
To the Stony Brook University Community,
As we approach the final weeks of the Spring Semester, we hope that you and your families are healthy and safe. We write to update you on plans for the months ahead and, in particular, the planning underway for the 2020-2021 academic year.
As you know, our region stands at the current epicenter of the pandemic in the United States. We are proud of how the Stony Brook community has responded. Our Stony Brook Medicine personnel have been heroic in meeting the rapidly escalating healthcare needs of our region. Our faculty and staff facilitated a smooth transition to remote teaching and learning so that our academic mission could continue. Our students have risen to the challenges posed by remote learning.
