Message from Dr. Stanley
August 27, 2018
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,
Welcome to the new academic year! It is my hope that this year will be filled with boundless opportunities, astounding discoveries and personal triumphs for you and your families. I am proud of all we achieved as a community this past year, even in the face of considerable financial and operational challenges.
By working together I am confident that Stony Brook will emerge stronger, continuing to preserve and enhance the quality of the student experience, while also meeting our mission as New York’s flagship research university.
