Mission

The University has a five-part mission:
to provide comprehensive undergraduate, graduate, and professional education of the highest quality;
to carry out research and intellectual endeavors of the highest international standards that advance knowledge and have immediate or long-range practical significance;
to provide leadership for economic growth, technology, and culture for neighboring communities and the wider geographic region;
to provide state-of-the-art innovative health care, while serving as a resource to a regional health care network and to the traditionally underserved;
to fulfill these objectives while celebrating diversity and positioning the University in the global community.

Description

Since its founding in 1957, Stony Brook University has established itself as one of America’s most dynamic public universities, a center of academic excellence and an essential part of the region’s economy. Now, transformed by a historic $150 million gift from Jim and Marilyn Simons and the Simons Foundation — among the top 10 gifts to public higher education in America — Stony Brook is poised to accelerate its trajectory of excellence.

U.S.News & World Report ranks Stony Brook among the top 100 public universities in the nation, and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings places us among the top 1 percent of all the universities in the world. A member of the elite Association of American Universities, Stony Brook is one of the 61 top research institutions in North America.

Nobel laureates, Guggenheim fellows and MacArthur grant winners teach on our campus, making it a magnet for outstanding students. The University offers more than 150 undergraduate and 140 graduate programs and has 24,100 students.

Stony Brook’s reach extends from its 1,040-acre campus on Long Island’s North Shore — encompassing not only the main academic areas of the University, but also Stony Brook Medicine, which includes the schools of Dental Medicine, Health Technology and Management, Medicine, Nursing, and Social Welfare, as well as the Hospital, our major centers and institutes, programs and clinics and the Long Island State Veterans Home — to Stony Brook Manhattan, a Research and Development Park, four business incubators and our Southampton campus on Long Island’s East End. Stony Brook also co-manages Brookhaven National Laboratory.
