Coming Back Safe and Strong: Students Step Up!
Play • 58 min

As students have been returning to college campuses, we have seen a large spike in Coronavirus cases. However, cases at Stony Brook University have remained minimal and manageable. While the University has put rigorous testing protocols in place — even partnering with an outside lab to provide rapid tests — the onus of this success has been on the students. Their compliance, as well as their persistent urging of the entire campus community to follow safety protocols, continues to help maintain our low infection rate.  This episode of Beyond the Expected Podcast -- Coming Back Safe and Strong: Students Step Up! -- celebrates student and University successes to date and looks to our future plans for fall, winter and beyond.

Moderated by Lawrence M. Zacarese, JD, MPA; Interim Chief of Police and Assistant Vice President for Campus Safety, Stony Brook University Police; this panel looks at the keys to our success to date, including the role students have played to keep our campus safe and maintain our carefully designed hybrid learning model.

Guests include:

  • Marisa Bisiani, Assistant Vice President, Student Health, Wellness and Prevention Services, Division of Student Affairs
  • Rick Gatteau, PhD, Vice President for Student Affairs & Dean of Students, Division of Student Affairs
  • Shelley Germana, PhD, Associate Provost for Academic Success, Division of Undergraduate Education
