To mark National Mentoring Month, Stony Brook’s video series “5 Questions With …” is releasing four new video interviews highlighting the importance of mentoring in higher education and career success.
5 questionsPaleoanthropologist Meave Leakey, conservationist Carl Safina, social psychologist Amy Cuddy, and author Roger Rosenblatt are the four latest luminaries giving thoughtful, compelling interviews, featured on a browsable website as well as a Youtube playlist.
The ongoing series, part of the “In The Know” offerings created by SBU’s Office of Marketing and Communications,  spotlights the university’s role in global thought leadership. Interview subjects are affiliated with or have visited the campus for student and community enrichment events and activities.
“We are opening a window into the lives of successful professionals from diverse fields who have shared formative experiences, career discoveries and insights on how specific moments and experiences guided them along their path in life, and how college and career experiences enriched and shaped them,” said Nicholas Scibetta, Vice President for Communications and Marketing and Chief Communications Officer at Stony Brook.
Each of the luminaries interviewed relates the importance of mentoring to his or her education and career.
