A lot of great news in that Doc Chairman.

Glad the IPF is on the way! I wonder if ours will be complete before Buffalo's is? I doubt it, but it'll be very close.

charles wang passes away: https://www.sbstatesman.com/2018/10/21/long-island-businessman-and-philanthropist-charles-b-wang-dies/

In 1996, Wang initially pledged $20-$25 million to build an Asian American cultural center at Stony Brook. At the time, this was the biggest ever donation made to SUNY by an individual. By the time the building opened its doors in October of 2002, Wang said he and his foundation put more than $52 million into the project.

Then I asked, “What are the biggest issues that Stony Brook faces in managing its budget?”

Stanley claimed that many budgeting problems come from the fact that the university’s costs are increasing faster than its revenue.

“The revenue we have has come through state allocation, which hasn’t gone up since 2007,” Stanley said. “In 2007, we received $200 million a year from the state to help manage Stony Brook. We now receive $157 million dollars a year, and its been frozen since 2009.”

That's a major problem and a poor business model to say the least . Only New York would short change a one of its premier university

You'd think the geniuses up at Albany would eventually get the hint to get this all together, but apparently not.

Unique to this year’s effort, Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, and his wife, Ellen Li, MD, PhD, have pledged to personally match the total amount raised by the Class of 2019’s Senior Class Legacy.

“By matching the total raised by the class of 2019, Ellen and I want to let our students know that we are behind them 100 percent and really appreciate what they are doing to help others,” Dr. Stanley said. “We also know that our challenge may inspire them to want to do more, and we are committed to helping the class of 2019 make a real difference.”
