Following President Samuel L. Stanley’s State of the University Address in Staller Center on Wednesday, September 25, the new Faculty Honor Wall was formally dedicated in the Frank Melville Jr. Memorial Library lobby. The wall acknowledges the contributions of our distinguished Stony Brook faculty.
Stony Brook’s tradition of faculty excellence includes three Nobel laureates and an Abel Prize winner. In last year’s State of the University address, President Stanley announced an initiative to honor the faculty who have done so much and brought such renown to the University.
The new Faculty Wall of Honor acknowledges distinguished faculty in the following categories:
American Academy of Arts & Sciences
American Association for the Advancement of Science
American Philosophical Society
National Academy of Engineering
National Inventors Hall of Fame
National Medal of Technology and Innovation
“I hope this will serve as an inspiration to all of us and remind everyone of what a special place Stony Brook University is,” said President Stanley.
A complete listing of faculty members acknowledged on the wall is available on the website of the Office of the Vice President for Research.
