SBU Libraries - Strategic Plan 2024

A place for news and updates related to the strategic planning process of Stony Brook University Libraries, 2024- 2029.

What we're thinking about

​​​​​​Our strategic plan is also a strategic direction that will inspire our objectives. We will be considering broad-themed priorities to help the libraries meet the current requirements of our community by using our expertise and experience. These goals will sit within our overarching themes that are incorporated in all of our work: diversity, equity, inclusion, & accessibility; leadership; and infrastructure (technology and facilities).

Based on what we are learning from feedback, we strive to build a stable, supportive, and inspiring workplace for our people in the libraries.
