As the doors open for Stony Brook University’s (SBU) new on-site Office of Brookhaven Affairs in Bldg. 460, Michael Marx, SBU’s Associate Vice President for Brookhaven Affairs, announced several benefits at SBU available to all BNL employees. BNL is managed for DOE by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company formed by partners Battelle and SBU.
I am very excited to offer BNLers access to some of the great things going on at Stony Brook. We hope these opportunities will strengthen relationships between Stony Brook and BNL as we further the world-class science being done at these closely linked research institutions, Marx stated.
The benefits include:
- Staller Center for the Arts: $3 discount on ticket price (two tickets per BNL ID)
- Seawolves/Athletic Events: 40 percent off ticket price (two tickets per BNL ID)
- Library Collections: borrowing privileges with BNL ID
- Wellness Center: 40 percent off subscription rate with BNL ID
- Sports Complex: $75 per person per year; $150 per family of four per year. Includes access to track, open basketball court, racquetball court, squash court, weight room, and pool (when not used for classes)
- Parking: may purchase garage passes; BNL tag may be used in faculty/staff free parking lots
SBU’s Office of Brookhaven Affairs is led by Provost and Vice President Eric Kaler. He replaced retiree Bob McGrath in 2007, and in 2008, he appointed Michael Marx as the Associate Vice President for Brookhaven Affairs. Marx, a physics professor, completed his thesis at BNL’s Alternating Gradient Synchrotron and has collaborated with Lab scientists for more than 40 years. He continues to explore new avenues to build closer relationships between BNL and university scientists and staff.
Marx and Stony Brook’s Office of Brookhaven Affairs welcome new ideas and suggestions that will help connect those at BNL and Stony Brook. Marx can be reached at 631-632-8102 or Michael.Marx@StonyBrook.edu.
