Stony Brook University is dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming educational environment for our community free from all forms of gender discrimination, including sexual violence. We are reviewing recent communication from the US Education Department and Office of Civil Rights to understand how it might impact our policies and procedures around Title IX enforcement.
We are confident that our Our Title IX process is fair, impartial and provides students with an opportunity to be heard. We believe strongly in the progress we have made to raise awareness and help prevent sexual assault and gender-based violence including bystander intervention initiatives. We will continue to be proactive in communicating and educating around the prevention of gender based violence and to offer support and services for victims of sexual assault.
More information and resources can be found on our Title IX and Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity websites.
