Stony Brook University Non-Discrimination Statement and Title IX Notice of Non-Discrimination

As we begin a new year and a new semester, I wanted to take some time to remind the campus community of Stony Brook University’s notice of non-discrimination and our longstanding commitment to equal employment and educational opportunities.  

Stony Brook University’s administration, faculty, staff, and students are all responsible for helping to create and maintain welcoming environments. It is important that we familiarize ourselves with the policies that effect our daily interactions with others on campus. Please take time to review the University’s Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Policy (P105) and Sexual Misconduct and Reporting Policy (P106).  Both policies are vital to creating and maintaining a community, in which our  diverse population can live, work, study, and recreate in an atmosphere of tolerance, civility, equity, equal employment opportunity, and respect for every individual.
