The Community Pledge is a call to action, an invitation; a voluntary choice and opportunity to affirm our commitment to one another. It is not a petition, and not a club.

Taking the pledge demonstrates your commitment to other members of the Stony Brook University community. It says that "We" will stand up for one another. It offers us all a stronger community, a better future.

Last year, a committee of students and administrators revised the Community Pledge to express Stony Brook University's current commitment to caring, respect, and civility, and, additionally, to anti-racism and maintaining an open and just campus for all Seawolves.  

Questions about the Community Pledge can be sent to the Office of Multicultural Affairs,, (631) 632-9984.

who have already signed the pledge.
