Presidential Search Update: Oct. 24, 2019

Dear Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni Community:

I am writing to update you on the search for Stony Brook's next president.

The Search Committee met at the end of September to receive the charge from Chancellor Kristina Johnson. We also met with the Isaacson Miller search consultants to outline the search schedule, key qualities desired in the next president, and important elements to include in the position profile. The  profile is now finalized and on our search  website, and ads in various online and in-print publications are running (see below).

Please share the profile with your networks so that we may cast as wide a net as possible in developing a set of potential candidates.  Nominations are being accepted at the Isaacson Miller website. Comments and suggestions may be submitted to

We look forward to a robust search, and we will keep you informed as the search progresses.


Kevin S. Law
Chair, Stony Brook Council
Chair, Presidential Search Committee
