THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE ITALIAN STUDIES ENDOWMENT CHAIR AT STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY.
The Brookhaven UNICO Chapter, in conjunction with UNICO National, and the UNICO Foundation were all instrumental in the establishment of the first-in-the-country Italian Studies Chair named to honor former United States Senator Alfonse D'Amato, and extremely supportive of Stony Brook University in it’s fund raising efforts. UNICO’s Brookhaven, NY chapter served as the initiator of this chair’s fund raising.

The endowment of this professorship in Italian-American Studies will allow students to gain a better appreciation for the Italian-American experience, and preserve its rich cultural legacy for future generations.
