Stony Brook University has released a video containing highlights of the 2019 State of the University address, delivered by Interim President Michael A. Bernstein.
Praising Stony Brook University as “an elite — but not elitist — institution,” Bernstein delivered the address on Wednesday, October 16, on Staller Center’s Main Stage.
Addressing an enthusiastic audience representing all areas of the university, Dr. Bernstein emphasized the importance of shared governance in planning the university’s future. He was hailed with a standing ovation at the conclusion of his remarks.
“Our university demonstrates, not only the best of what American higher education has to offer, but the array, and indeed the total 360-degree richness, of what American higher education has to offer,” he said. “That is part of our mission, our legacy, and indeed: it’s our story.”
