When the Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC), a New York State-designated Center of Excellence, was founded several years ago at Stony Brook University, its goal was to foster collaboration between the brightest minds in academia and industry leaders in energy. Its interdisciplinary research program and state-of-the-art laboratories have since kept the University at the leading edge of discovery, resulting in new technologies that impact residential and commercial energy use worldwide. Stony Brook recently took another step in its commitment to a future that protects the environment with efficient, sustainable energy management. The University announced on Friday, Feb. 16,…

For Eboné Carrington ’01, going “Far Beyond” meant taking a trip across the street. After years of overlooking Harlem Hospital from her balcony — and after earning her BS in Business Management at Stony Brook in 2001 — the Harlem native and 40 Under Forty honoree made history in 2016 when she became the Hospital’s youngest-ever CEO at the age of 37. Today, Eboné manages over 2,400 employees and a $200 million budget.  Still, her ties to Harlem Hospital go beyond her own work as CEO. Both of her parents have held positions in the Hospital, making for over 80…

Asad Moughal ’19 has dreamed of working at Google for as long as he can remember.  Thanks to the Stony Brook Career Center, he’s now taken steps toward achieving that goal. “I was able to connect with three alumni, all of whom had amazing things to say about everything from resume advice to interview preparation,” Asad said. “Best of all, I was able to connect with an alum who works at Google, which is a dream employer of mine, and this alumnus was more than open to sharing her experience and advice.” Asad, a marketing intern for the Career Center and…

Growing up in Queens in the 1950s and 60s, John Warkentin ’70 knew one constant in his parents’ house: an emphasis on education. “Education was the most important aspect of our lives growing up,” Warkentin recalled. “We were encouraged to read, to go to the library, to do our best in school. We didn’t have to get the highest grades if it wasn’t possible, but effort was looked upon very carefully.” Still, when the time came for John and his siblings to go to college, the cost was a concern. “My parents were traditional middle-class for the era,” Warkentin replied,…

Following the passing of Dr. Peter Baigent, vice president of Student Affairs and president of the Faculty Student Association, along with the recent retirement of former Dean of Students Jerrold Stein, the university was left with the unenviable task of replacing two giants in the campus community. Rick Gatteau, PhD, recently named interim vice president for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, is well positioned to fill their shoes. “You need someone really special to succeed in that new role,” said Jeffrey Barnett, interim associate Dean of Students and longtime colleague of Gatteau. “Combining these two positions can work, but…
