Policies

On this page you will find a complete list of all University-wide policies. A policy is a directive that states the University’s official position on a particular issue. University-wide policies endure across time and administrations, and connect Stony Brook’s mission and values to individual conduct. University-wide policies: 

      • Mandate actions or constraints for members of the Stony Brook community 
      • Have broad application throughout the University
      • Support the University’s mission 
      • Promote quality and operational efficiency 
      • Help manage institutional risks
      • Support equity and integrity in practices across the University

All University-wide policies are issued by University leadership (Issuing Authority) and must be approved by the University President (or designee) in accordance with the process detailed in the Policy on Policies. Issuing Authorities must assign responsibility for implementing and supporting each of its policies.
