The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) has named Stony Brook University a point of distribution (POD) for the state’s coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination plan, making it the largest state-run POD in Suffolk County.
On Thursday, at least 24 Stony Brook University students and two Statesman reporters boarded buses to Albany to participate in Higher Education Action day, where representatives from State University of New York (SUNY) and City University of New York (CUNY) schools meet with government officials to discuss how to improve funding for higher education in New York.
On Aug. 30, Interim President Michael Bernstein sat down for an interview with The Statesman along with University Media Relations Officer Lauren Sheprow to discuss the administrative changes that are happening at the university, the school budget and more.
For years, UUP elections on the Stony Brook campus have been fairly uncompetitive. But this time around, a group of candidates called the Coalition for Union Reform & Democracy emerged to shake things up.
