As a public institution, Stony Brook University
has an important responsibility to be a model of how diverse groups can come together to achieve a shared goal of higher learning within a context of respect for our differences, dignity, privacy, and our right to participate in this community free from harassment, discrimination, intimidation, or hostility.

Creating a safe and inclusive community happens not only through intentions or policy statements, but concrete action as well. Over the last several years, Stony Brook has taken steps and will continue to implement programs to make the campus safer for our LGBT members and allies, as well as broaden dialogues about diversity.
