Diversity, Civility and Expectations
Stony Brook is committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive community in which
students, faculty, and staff thrive in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination.
The unprecedented crisis of COVID-19, with its constant flow of conflicting information
and rumors, has in some cases increased levels of fear, facilitated mistrust, and
created a platform for intolerant behavior, the enemies of civility.
Stony Brook is strongly opposed to discrimination and harassment, and such behavior
is prohibited by University policy. It is important that you familiarize yourselves
with the policies that effect our daily interactions with others on campus.
