The Office of Administration & Finance's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Initiative at Stony Brook University was founded in 2021 to help develop, support, and champion a professional work environment on campus that celebrates the ideals of diversity, equity, and inclusion, in both word and deed.





Tree Planting Ceremony

During April of 2021, The Office of Administration & Finance's Diversity Initiative hosted our inaugural event. During the tree planting ceremony entitled Diversity: Our Beauty Among the Branches , the Stony Brook Community joined together to plant a coral bark maple tree outside of East Side Dining as well as celebrate Earth Day 2021. 

This young tree was planted in celebration of inclusivity, equity, and care for one another and the environment. We look forward to watching it grow in the years ahead. Watch the video here.
