Stony Brook University is one of several global institutions and research centers
vying to become the anchor establishment for a climate science related development
project by the City of New York and Trust for Governors Island. The selected institution
will become a key partner to the city in positioning itself as a global hub for climate
science research and solutions. It will receive real estate on Governors Island —
a 172-acre island located south of Manhattan and west of Brooklyn — and up to $150
million for capital improvements.
This opportunity aligns with Stony Brook University's current mission and complements
much of the research and education already happening here. This initiative would help
position Stony Brook as a global convener for addressing one of the world's greatest
challenges — climate change.
This is a serendipitous moment that could play a very important role in determining
Stony Brook's future. Join us in imagining how we take full advantage.
