The Center for Community Engagement and Leadership Development (CCE) was founded in 2013 as a means to strengthen partnerships between Stony Brook University (SBU) and the community, to help develop research opportunities for faculty, and respond to needs in education, healthcare, and social change across Long Island.

We have a firm commitment to inclusivity, and welcome all interested faculty – both from SHTM and outside of it – to join. There is, of course, no commitment to being a part of the CCE, and we simply hope to create an atmosphere that is collegial, supportive, and creative so that we all can do the best and most meaningful work possible.

The CCE is a hub for community-engaged research conducted in an environment that utilizes all our expertise and can help SBU faculty establish the right professional and community partnerships to do work that will move society forward.
