Statement from President Stanley on Proposed Changes to Title IX
November 30, 2018
The federal Department of Education has announced proposed changes to Title IX rules and regulations governing how colleges and universities respond to allegations of sexual misconduct.
Stony Brook University currently follows New York State's stringent Title IX laws and procedures and has a well-defined process that safeguards the rights of all parties. Some of the proposed changes could weaken these protections.
We are serious about keeping our students safe and free from sexual and gender-based violence.

passion for knowledge, and of challenges, but ultimately today, perseverance and sweet
success,” President Stanley Jr. told the class at the Dec. 21 ceremony.
