From Ecuador to South Korea, Unleashing Their Potential shows how experiences at Stony Brook and overseas transformed the lives of five alumni Fulbright fellows.

In Guiding Lights, meet five dedicated women at Stony Brook who are having a significant impact on students, fellow educators, local communities and beyond through their teaching, mentoring and research.

This issue also shines a spotlight on several outstanding alumni, including biology teacher and researcher Rebecca Grella ’12, who is fostering the next generation of scientists at Brentwood High School.
