Budget Message from President Stanley
March 25, 2019
On the eve of a new 2019 State budget agreement, I wanted to provide an update to the campus community on the University’s current financial status and where we are headed. We still face significant challenges, as the fundamental issue of the structural deficit that all SUNY schools face has still not been resolved. As shown in the accompanying table which contains data provided by SUNY on the yearly and total costs of the new contract, the sum of the contractual salary increases for the academic enterprise components of SUNY will be more than $1.1 billion, and Stony Brook, as a premier research university will bear a significant part of that, more than $200 million.
