In the latest episode of the “Beyond the Expected” podcast series, Interim President Michael Bernstein talks to three Stony Brook University administrators who are deep in the trenches of emergency management operations; communications and risk management; healthcare guidance and delivery; and mitigation of the spread of COVID-19.
Podcast guests are:
- Marisa Bisiani, Assistant Vice President of the University’s Student Health Services, where she develops and runs programs to help students achieve their academic goals while maintaining their health and well-being.
- Rick Gatteau, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students.
- Lawrence Zacarese, Assistant Chief of Police and Director of the Office of Emergency Management, who has been instrumental in developing strategies for campus safety during this pandemic event.
Our primary focus is the health and safety of our students,” Gatteau says. “That’s the number one priority for our students on the campus.”
“As each hour has passed, more and more information comes out about processes to put in place, about advice, recommendations, urging our community, in particular our students, to take good care and to make sure that they are following protocols that we’ve put in place,” he adds.
