Arts & Education Outreach 

All Staller Center Arts and Education Outreach are supported by generous private donations from individuals who value advancing the arts in young minds.  We invite you to join us at a Staller Center Arts & Education Outreach program and experience the excitement in the air. The Staller Center is dedicated to providing cultural arts experiences and educational opportunities to the local community and Stony Brook University students of all ages from preschool through young adult.  Through the Barbara N. Wien Arts & Education Endowment as well as an anonymously funded Educational Outreach Endowment, Staller Center can share the arts through programs such as First on Us, master-classes, complimentary tickets and busing for area schools, orchestra to orchestra and the ever-popular Instrument Petting Zoo.

We are a family – and our amazing students always respond when called upon to serve others,” said Kathleen Valerio, Peer Education Program Coordinator for the Division of Student Health, Wellness and Prevention Services, and Advisor to the Student Blood Drive Committee. “It is an honor to support life-saving efforts with collaborations on our campus.
