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

To All Faculty, Staff and Students:

As we settle into the Fall Semester, I wanted to take a moment to remind the community of Stony Brook University’s commitment to creating and fostering a learning, working, and living environment that is free from discrimination and sexual harassment. Stony Brook University prohibits discrimination and harassment on the basis of  race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, religion, age, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, disability, marital status, familial status, pregnancy, genetic predisposition, criminal convictions, domestic violence victim status, and veteran or military status and all other protected classes under federal or state laws.

It is important that we familiarize ourselves with the policies that affect our daily interactions with others on campus, whether it be students, faculty, staff, visitors or patients in our care. 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, with equal employment opportunity, and respect for every individual.

To report a discrimination or sexual misconduct matter, please contact the Sr. Director of the Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity (OIDE) and Title IX & ADA Coordinator, Marjolie Leonard, at OIDE is located in the Administration Building, Room 201; Phone: 631-632-6280. For more information on how to make a report, visit their website at or email them at

For complete details on the University’s Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Policy please see  University Policy Manual P105. For more information on the University’s Sexual Misconduct & Reporting Policy please see  University Policy Manual P106.
