At a ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 2, the College of Business Dean, Manny London, and Island Federal Credit Union President and CEO, Bret Sears, formally opened the Island Federal Credit Union Business Lab. The newly outfitted space, located on the third floor of Harriman Hall, provides a functional and private lab for research. The naming comes as part of a $3,000,000 philanthropic gift made by Island Federal Credit Union in 2014. Of that gift, $750,000 established three funds at the College of Business, including an endowment for banking education and research, a dean’s fund for excellence in finance and a…

Ed Flower can only think of one reason why his friend of 60 years, the late Bernard Malberg, DDS, put him in charge of his charitable trust. For a laugh. “I suspect it was his idea of a joke,” Flower said, “to create this charitable trust, put me in charge, and not tell me what to do. He probably thought, ‘You’ll figure it out.’” That said, one of the things that Flower has “figured out” is anything but a joke for students at Stony Brook University’s School of Dental Medicine: how to distribute his friend’s money to defray the cost…

The Stony Brook track and field team competed in the Penn Relays Thursday, April 26th through Saturday, April 28th. “This was an important few days for some of our athletes, they needed to produce some top- level performances to put themselves in contention for the post season championships,” said head coach Andy Ronan. It was really encouraging to see them respond to the challenge.” “Cameron ran a tough gutsy race on Thursday night in the 10,000m, just coming up short for the win, but producing a quality time that should get him into the first round of the NCAA’s in Tampa next…

BY: MIKE ADAMS Nobel Prize-winning theoretical physicist Kip Thorne spoke at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics on Thursday, April 19 as part of the center’s Della Pietra Lecture Series.

While electromagnetic waves, Thorne explained, move through space, gravitational waves are periodic distortions of…

I give back to Stony Brook University because it gave me the education to fearlessly seek a great job in publishing. I transferred to Stony Brook in 1980 after 2 semesters at Suffolk (and a semester each at two other colleges over the course of 10 years), and wound up spending four full years there, every minute of which I loved.  Yes, I graduated with around 180 credits but, they were all worth the time and effort, as I learned so much from my classes.  I was an English major but, also studied medieval history, behavioral psychology, and French.  I think, because I was in my late 20’s, I had a more mature attitude…
