Stony Brook University is committed to creating and maintaining workplace, educational, and recreational environments that are safe and accessible, and free of all forms of discrimination, discriminatory harassment and sexual harassment, including non-consensual sexual contact, sexual violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Such behavior is prohibited and violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

  1. Sexual Harassment is unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and verbal or physical or communicative (verbal, non-verbal and electronic) conduct of an abusive sexual nature constitute harassment when such conduct interferes with an individualís work or academic performance, or creates and intimidating, hostile, or offensive work or academic environment. Harassment of employees by supervisors or of students by faculty or administration is unlawful and may result in sanctions, as permitted. Conversely, harassment of supervisors by employees, faculty by students, or individuals by co-workers violates University policy and practice.
  2. The University is responsible for and fully committed to the prevention and elimination of sexual harassment. All members of the campus community are responsible for fostering an atmosphere that promotes equity, civility, caring, responsibility, accountability, and respect.
  3. The University does not tolerate sexual harassment and treats it as a form of misconduct, which is handled in accordance with the Universityís discrimination complaint procedure. Sanctions enforced against individuals engaged in such behavior will follow Labor Management process and procedures if the respondent is a faculty or staff member or will be address through Community Standards if the named individual is a student.
