Stony Brook University is committed to equal employment and education opportunity and is required by law to collect and report periodically the data regarding its faculty and staff. In its effort to comply, employees are asked to self-identify their Veteran / Disability status, Race & Ethnicity in SOLAR by Friday, April 3, 2015. By doing so, employees can help Stony Brook University report the makeup of its workforce to accrediting bodies, state and federal agencies, as well as continue to receive grants and critical funds for research. The completion of this information is voluntary and confidential and will not become part of personnel files and in no way affects employment status.
SOLAR is Stony Brook University's enterprise-wide, self-service system which provides faculty, staff, and students with online access to manage personal information. Students use SOLAR to register for classes, print schedules, view and pay bills, update personal contact information, view transcripts, and submit student employment timesheets. Employees use SOLAR to update personal contact information, view vacation/sick accruals, print class rosters, submit grades, and much more.
