Success Stories

Stony Brook alums are making their mark on the world in virtually every field and profession.

Our alumni community is comprised of world-renowned physicists and researchers, leaders in journalism, business, education and healthcare. And over the years, we've been fortunate that many have contributed their time and talents to helping current students and faculty in their own efforts to fulfill their potential and that of their alma mater.

Below is just a sampling of alums who have distinguished themselves and are proud to be Stony Brook alums. Check out the University's list of other influential SBU alumni. Are you making a difference in your career, your community or in the world at large? We would love to hear about it. Please email us at alumni@stonybrook.edu.
