The mission of Stony Brook University — to advance our community and the world through knowledge and discovery — is lived through the activities of our core schools, colleges and programs. Across our 12 schools and colleges, our NCAA Division 1 athletics program, and the initiatives of the Staller Center for the Arts, we deliver an accessible world-class education, an incomparably dynamic student experience, and transformative research and medical care. By supporting their individual efforts, we lift up the university as a whole.
