After 13 years of working within the Stony Brook University community, Stefan Hyman was appointed to the position of Assistant Provost for Enrollment Strategies, Communications and Analytics at the beginning of the year.
New teachers will join the Stony Brook University faculty through the Cluster Hiring Initiative. Put in place by NYSUNY 2020 legislation, this initiative allows for the hiring of interdisciplinary clusters of faculty members.
NYSUNY 2020 is a program implemented in the summer of 2011 primarily targeted to four SUNY schools: Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo and Stony Brook. This program was designed to aid in standardizing tuition hikes for five years as well as helping the economic and academic growth in New York State.
