System-Wide SUNY Policy Will Require All SUNY Campuses to Develop a Sexual and Romantic Relationship Policy by March 1, 2019
January 10, 2019
On October 9, 2018, the State University of New York (“SUNY”) Board of Trustees adopted a new resolution imposing new policy requirements with regard to consensual or amorous relationships among faculty, staff, and students. The new SUNY policy requirements come in light of the recent New York State sexual harassment prevention policy and training requirements and guidelines. This system-wide policy now requires that all SUNY campuses develop and disseminate a “Sexual and Romantic Relationship Policy” to their respective campus communities on or before March 1, 2019. The new policy requirements apply to all SUNY campuses, including all state-operated campuses, statutory colleges, and community colleges.
