From the university president ... I am pleased to partner again with the Times Beacon Record to share with the community the many different programs Stony Brook University offers that may be of interest to our friends and neighbors. In addition to our mission to educate the best and brightest students and to provide cutting-edge health care, we are dedicated to creating new initiatives and offering services that will also benefit the Long Island community. In September, we are celebrating our 60th anniversary. In 1957, the University began as a small teachers preparatory college with only 148 students. After moving to Stony Brook in 1962, we began to flourish, becoming a respected incubator of teaching and research innovation as well as a powerful engine for Long Island’s economic growth. We have gone far beyond the expectations of what today’s public universities can accomplish in a very short period of time. But we would not be where we are today without the support of the community and our students, faculty and staff. As part of Stony Brook University’s strong commitment to building an inclusive community for our students, employees and neighbors, we are proud to hold our first CommUniversity Day on Saturday, September 23, from 12 pm to 4 pm. Please join us for a day of celebration as we showcase the best of Stony Brook through entertaining hands-on, interactive activi-

When my husband and I moved to Long Island, we wanted a university community for its academic, cultural and worldly aspects. We wanted a top medical community, a village with a sense of its own history and pride in its roots, and a good school district. We also wanted a beautiful place with great recreational activities, near the water. We found such a location and have lived here going on five decades. It has seldom disappointed, in part because of the presence of Stony Brook University. And even as we raised our family here and grew our careers, so did SBU grow in prestige and in what it offers the community. To help you, our readers, see what is available on campus and off, we have partnered with the university to bring you a comprehensive resource guide to their events and also, on the other side of the bridge, to our excel-

From art displays and athletic clinics to student performances and virtual reality demonstrations, there will be something for everyone to enjoy. For more details, please see the article on CommUniversity Day in this issue. While Stony Brook University is a center of academic excellence and a vital resource for Long Island, it is also the premier destination in Suffolk for arts and entertainment. The Staller Center for the Arts offers the best in music, theater, dance, cinema and comedy. This fall, Staller welcomes humorist David Sedaris on October 20 and hosts the prestigious Emerson String Quartet in October, December and March. The Charles B. Wang Center is another cultural showplace, featuring unique Asian and Asian American exhibits, lectures and performances. New this year, you can experience a Japanese tea ceremony in a specially constructed tea room. Art is always on display in the Wang Center lobbies, at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, and in the Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery in the Staller Center for the public to enjoy. Our athletic teams’ fall seasons are underway. Sports fans of all ages come to Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium to cheer on our football and soccer teams. We hope to see you for all the family fun at our annual Wolfstock event on October 14, celebrating

This is the fourth year of our publication, which concentrates on the west or main campus, and describes its palette of rich offerings and schedules, including sports, lectures and performances to which the public is enthusiastically invited. “Bridges” also presents the outstanding local business community on the university’s doorstep. In February, at the start of the second academic semester, we will again publish a similarly comprehensive overview of the east campus. Called “Bridges,” to symbolize the alliance of campus and community and to encourage further interaction between us, this resource guide is distributed in all six of our hometown newspapers along the North Shore of Suffolk County and to faculty, students and administration throughout SBU.

Stony Brook Welcomes New Provost Promising bold new academic leadership and commitment to excellence, Michael A. Bernstein joined Stony Brook University as chief academic officer on October 31, 2016. Bernstein, provost and senior vice President for academic affairs, was the John Christie Barr Professor of History and Economics and provost of Tulane University from 2007 through July 2016. “I’m very excited that Dr. Bernstein has joined Stony Brook University,” said President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. “Under Dr. Bernstein’s leadership as provost at Tulane, both the STEM disciplines and the liberal arts flourished, benefiting from his keen ability to understand and help meet the distinct needs of the whole research university. “His experience at Tulane,” continued President Stanley, “and in his leadership positions at University of California at San Diego (UCSD), including chair of the faculty senate — among his many other accomplishments — lends a unique and diverse perspective, and I am looking forward to his contributions and leadership.” Bernstein is highly qualified to lead Stony Brook in the fulfillment of its academic mission. He received his PhD (1982), MPhil (1980), MA (1978) and BA (1976) in economics, all at Yale University. His teaching and research interests focus on the economic and political history of the United States, macroeconomic theory, industrial organization economics, and the history of economic theory. Bernstein succeeds Dennis N. Assanis, who left Stony Brook on June 30, 2016 to become president of the University of Delaware. “The Office of the Provost fosters an enriched learning environment through enhancing faculty success, student success, diversity and inclusiveness and institutional effectiveness,” said Bernstein. “Our mission is to elevate the overall Stony

Brook experience through continued advancement in pursuit of these goals.” As chief academic officer, the provost is responsible for oversight of the academic mission of West campus, providing direct supervision for all academic units, support services and operations, and coordinating all academic programs. The deans and directors of the colleges, schools, libraries, centers and institutes, other than those under Stony Brook Medicine, report to the provost. Prior to his tenure as the chief academic officer at Tulane, Bernstein was at UCSD for two decades, where he served as the dean of arts and humanities and as a professor of history, a department he chaired for six years. He also served as chair of the Academic Senate of his home campus while at UCSD, and participated in the work of the UCSD Chancellor’s Diversity Council, the Advisory Board of the UCSD Women’s Center, the Advisory Committee of the UCSD Office of Sexual Harassment Prevention and Policy, and of the Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women.

Stanford Study: Stony Brook Creates Upward Income Mobility for Low-income Students

A Stony Brook University education provides a proven path toward upward mobility for students from low-income households, according to a new study led by the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research. Titled “Mobility Report Cards: The Role of Colleges in Intergenerational Mobility,” the report ranks Stony Brook among the top 10 colleges and universities in the nation whose students begin college at the bottom fifth of income distribution and then go on to earn in the top three-fifths. According to the study, 51 percent of students from the bottom quintile reach the top quintile at Stony Brook. Because 16 percent of students at Stony Brook are from the bottom quintile compared with 4 percent at the IvyPlus colleges, Stony Brook has a bottom-to-top-quintile mobility rate of 8.4 percent, substantially higher than the 2.2 percent rate on average at Ivy-Plus colleges. “The study is a striking confirmation of Stony Brook’s unique strengths as an engine of social mobility,” said Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. “We admit the best and brightest students, regardless of economic status, and give them the top-flight education they need for success.” “Stony Brook offers an environment in which a diverse student body is encouraged to thrive,” continued

President Stanley, “and a wide array of programs — from EOP/AIM [Educational Opportunity Program/Advancement on Individual Merit] to intensive academic counseling — help to facilitate their success. In addition, I give significant credit first to our students for their perseverance; our faculty for their mentorship, academic rigor and guidance; and the staff in our career counseling services program who help our students achieve their potential.” The study tracked 14 years of financial records for col-

lege students, aged 18 to 22, at all public and private U.S. colleges and universities from 1999 through 2013. Using de-identified IRS data, researchers compared the reported earnings of college graduates in their early 30s to their parents’ income during student college years. Researchers examined the percentage of students from each institution and found that Stony Brook’s high mobility rate shows graduates reach high income levels within 10 years of graduation. According to the study, Stony Brook graduates were shown to have earned incomes “that are nearly comparable” to those of Columbia University graduates and Stony Brook “has a bottom-to-top-quintile mobility rate of 8.4 percent, channeling nearly 3 times as many children from the bottom to the top of the income distribution as Columbia.” “Improving access to higher education and minimizing student debt are vital to the role of higher education in economic mobility,” said President Stanley. “Also crucial are programs that ensure that economically disadvantaged students receive the support on campus that they need in order to benefit as fully as possible from a proven engine of economic mobility. I’m proud to say that is a top priority at Stony Brook.”

Special Collections: Preserving and Uncovering History Spy letters written by George Washington during the American Revolution. A history of the world published in 1493. One of the first maps depicting Long Island as an island. Photographs of Stony Brook’s original train station. These are just a few examples of the one-of-a-kind, library collections awaiting you in Special Collections and University Archives, the library division with a leading role in developing research collections at Stony Brook University. The department acquires, preserves and provides access to the University’s most rare, historic and unique books, maps and manuscript collections. Special Collections recently acquired an important local history collection: the papers of Eversley Childs (18671953) and family members of Crane Neck, Village of Old Field, New York, New York City and Greenwich, Connecticut. The collection is a trove for researchers studying all facets of Long Island history, from local politics to busi-

ness to marine sciences. It includes thousands of photographs, papers, maps and textiles documenting generations of the family. Childs headed and invested in several lucrative companies in the early 1900s, including Bon Ami and Technicolor, and was a philanthropist, founding a hospital in the Philippines for treating leprosy and donating land in Setauket to the Salvation Army. The collection will receive archival processing and be open for research in 2018. The department hosts several events each semester that are free and open to the public. Visit w w w.l i b r a r y. s t o n y b r o o k .e d u /s p e c i a l- c o l l e c t i o n s university-archives for more information or contact Kristen Nyitray, Department Head and University Archivist at (631) 632-7119.

Stony Brook Women’s Lacrosse Reaches New Heights in Record-Breaking 2017 Season

The Stony Brook women’s lacrosse team reached new heights in 2017, as the Seawolves shattered numerous NCAA records on their way to a program-best, 20-2 season. Stony Brook won its fifth-straight America East conference championship as the Seawolves advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the first time in program history. Stony Brook broke the NCAA single-season team records for points and assists, while junior Kylie Ohlmiller broke the single-season individual records for points and assists. The Seawolves had the nation’s top defense for the fourth time in the last five seasons under head coach Joe Spallina, who won his hundredth game with Stony Brook in May. The Seawolves were dominant at home, posting an 11-0 mark at LaValle Stadium and extending their home winning streak to 22 games, the third longest in the nation. The home-field advantage at LaValle was fueled by the second-highest attendance in the nation in 2017. Kylie Ohlmiller tallied 78 goals and 86 assists for 164 points on her way to firstteam All-American honors and Tewaaraton finalist distinction. Defender Brooke Gubitosi was also a first-team All-American, while midfielder Dorrien Van Dyke

and freshman attacker Taryn Ohlmiller added third-team All-American honors. The Ohlmiller sisters had the most combined points of any two teammates in 2017, as freshman Taryn notched 101 points in her first collegiate season to help the nation’s No. 3 scoring offense. The creative ways in which the sisters scored and assisted — often behind the back, between the legs or in mid-air — landed them on SportsCenter and other national highlight shows throughout the season. Spallina’s trademark Stony Brook defense was dominant again this spring, as in an era of increased offense with a shot clock, the Seawolves were still the nation’s top scoring defense. The Seawolves allowed 7.27 goals per game in 2017, giving them the top mark for the fourth time in the last five seasons. Goalie Anna Tesoriero led the nation with a 7.27 goals-against average, while Gubitosi’s 55 caused turnovers were a program and America East conference record. The Seawolves’ increased success was driven in part at the draw circle, where sophomore Keri McCarthy collected a program and conference-record 106 draw controls. Stony Brook was in the top-20 in the nation on the draw, a program-best.

Junior Kylie Ohlmiller broke the NCAA single-season assists and points records in 2017 and was named a first-team All-American and Tewaaraton finalist.

Freshman Taryn Ohlmiller was one of two freshmen in the nation to tally 100 points in 2017 and was selected as an All-American.

Stony Brook finished the year No. 3 in the Inside Lacrosse media poll after a stellar 2017 season that saw the Seawolves reach new heights in the NCAA tournament and throughout the record book. In 2018, Stony Brook returns nine starters — including the 100-point Ohlmiller sisters and fellow All-American

Gubitosi — and regains the services of NCAA single-season goals record-holder Courtney Murphy, who missed the majority of 2017 due to injury. Stony Brook will host the 2018 NCAA Division I National Championship Memorial Day weekend at LaValle Stadium.

Meet Wolfie, Stony Brook’s Lovable Mascot Wolfie the Seawolf is the fun-loving mascot who loves Stony Brook Athletics and promotes it around Stony Brook University (SBU) and in the local community. Wolfie has been a part of the Stony Brook family since 1995 — just a year after the SBU varsity teams became known as the Seawolves. The fourth nickname in SB history, “Seawolves” was selected from a list of more than 200 possible names by a 32-person committee of students, alumni, faculty and administrators. There’s no doubt that Wolfie is a celebrity: He was the 2009 Three Village Sportsman of the Year and a finalist for Best Mascot in the Long Island Press Best of Long Island 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 contests. He was also featured in the 2011 ESPN College Gameday commercial with fellow collegiate mascots and marched in New York City’s Columbus Day Parade. Wolfie’s favorite activities are cheering at Stony Brook games and having fun with SBU fans of all ages. You can find Wolfie cheering for the Seawolves student athletes wherever he goes. Be sure to say “hi” to Wolfie when you see him out and about. He’s always happy to greet Seawolves fans with a friendly high five or a hearty hug.

Wolfie the Seawolf is Stony Brook University’s mascot and a friend to all. Stop by an athletic event to meet him or have him visit your school or attend your special occasion.

Visits From WolFie Although he’s very busy at Stony Brook, Wolfie enjoys making special appearances at lots of events, like birthday parties, reunions, corporate events, charity events, fairs, festivals and more. If Wolfie comes to

your special event, you can be sure it’ll be fun, exciting and memorable. Please give Wolfie at least two weeks’ advance notice. Call (631) 632-7705 or email Wolfie@stonybrook.edu. You can also make a request online by visiting stonybrookathletics. com/wolfie.

Part-time graduate study is also a great way to start a second career or enhance an existing one. SPD’s graduate programs are designed to be stackable: Learners can first take some courses to earn a digital badge, then apply those courses toward an advanced certificate, and then take a few more to complete their master’s degree. SPD offers 24 graduate certificate or degree programs in human resource management, liberal studies, teaching (grades 7-12), higher education administration, K-12 administration, finance, coaching and industrial management, among others.

health sciences and hospital faculty staff and students. The Center cares for and educates children from 8 weeks old to 3 years in the Infant-Toddler Program, and from 3 to 5 years in the Preschool program. The primary aim is to provide a warm, supportive and creative atmosphere. Each room is “family-grouped,” enabling children to interact with others of different ages. Since children at this stage of their development learn by doing, there are plenty of hands-on activities to build a child’s self-reliance. The Center is staffed by full-time professionals and assisted by part-time support staff and University students enrolled in the Psychology 488 Internship. Under the supervision of the staff, the students work closely with the teachers in the classroom and attend weekly training. Students who have completed the internship are often invited to work as part-time support staff. The child-teacher ratio in the 3-to-5 year-old preschool program is 7 to 1; the Infant-Toddler program ages 2 months to 3 years, is 4 to 1. The Stony Brook Child Care Mission Statement is that Stony Brook Child Care is an early childhood education center that fosters learning, creativity and individuality in children while serving as a teaching model. We embrace diversity, value our highly qualified staff, and cultivate partnerships among our families, staff, board of directors and community. We support the University’s missions by providing educational experiences, research opportunities and service to the community.

Caring for America’s Heroes

The Long Island State Veterans Home The Long Island State Veterans Home (LISVH) is a special place that veterans are proud to call home, whether they are receiving rehabilitation, staying as a long-term resident or participating in the Adult Day Health Care Program. The 350-bed skilled nursing facility is located on 25 wooded acres on the east campus of Stony Brook University. The LISVH is a major teaching affiliate of Stony Brook Medicine and continues to be one of the only skilled nursing centers and adult day health care programs in the country that is fully integrated into the health and educational mission of a major teaching and research university. The programs at the LISVH are licensed by the New York State Department of Health and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Through its relationship with Stony Brook Medicine, LISVH provides state-of-the-art, comprehensive medical, nursing and ancillary services. The LISVH provides a fulltime medical director and a staff of full-time physicians with double board certifications in internal medicine and geriatrics. Its doctors have access to an in-house pharmacy operated by certified geriatric pharmacists, providing a comprehensive formulary. With a full complement of registered nurses on duty 24 hours a day and an onsite certified nursing assistant training program, the LISVH remains attentive to residents’ skilled nursing needs.

SBU Students – A Force for Good in Our Community No matter where you look in our local communities, you’ll find Stony Brook students giving, volunteering and lending a hand to their neighbors. In fact, the next time you see a group of young men and women pitching in to help with a community project, more likely than not they will be from the Stony Brook campus. For example, the Red Watch Band CARE Team, a bystander intervention program, visited three area high schools this year. The program is designed to inform college and high school students of the numerous ways that toxic drinking deaths can be prevented, and to promote an atmosphere of respect, responsibility and kindness. It was created after a Stony Brook Medicine doctor’s son died tragically due to alcohol poisoning, and the campus community felt compelled to create a program that could educate students on how to be an active bystander in an alcohol-related medical emergency. The Red Watch Band CARE Team plays a vital role in the program’s success. Committed student leaders conduct outreach at campus events and partner with various student groups, such as fraternities, sororities and athletes, as well as departments like Campus Residences. In fall 2016, Red Watch Band CARE Team members were determined to train at least 1,000 students. They exceeded this goal with a total of 1,284 students trained by the end of the semester. This was the highest number of students ever trained in one semester, making it a very important milestone for the program. SBU students participate in many other community service projects. Stony Brook’s Interfaith Center serves the commu-

nity by providing counseling, guidance and opportunities to serve others through community engagement. Some of the Center’s projects include the Midnight Run — when students bring donated clothes and food to New York City to share with the homeless — and the Special Needs Sing-Along, through which students and staff serve food and facilitate singing and dancing with special needs adults. These are just a few of the many ways that Stony Brook University students are giving back to our communities.

program at LISVH - which was just voted 2016 Best of Long Island by the Long Island Press - may be a welcome solution.
