Welcome to OEA!

The Office of Equity and Access (OEA) is charged with ensuring that the Stony Brook University experience provides equal opportunity and is safe, welcoming and free from discrimination. OEA serves the entire campus community, including Stony Brook University, Stony Brook Medicine, the Long Island State Veteran’s Home and Stony Brook Southampton. The populations we serve include, but are not limited to, Stony Brook’s world renowned faculty and medical staff; our undergraduate and graduate students, our professional, administrative and support staff; patients, visitors and guests. OEA governs University-wide compliance with Stony Brook policy and state and federal laws that prohibit all forms of discriminatory behavior. We are fully committed to the prevention and elimination of all forms of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct. 


Our office provides many types of equity and harassment prevention training courses, including mandatory sessions at incoming student orientation, new employee orientation and the annual hospital recertification. Topics provided include sexual harassment and violence prevention, best practices in discrimination prevention, diversity awareness and how to report a concern or a complaint.
