September 22, 2017

"SUNY is proud to be a national leader in developing programs to help colleges comply with Title IX, the Clery Act, and other laws, and developing resources for appropriate response to, and prevention of, sexual and interpersonal violence. Governor Cuomo's Enough is Enough law equips New York’s colleges and universities with some of the strongest guidance in the country. SUNY policy will continue to reflect the best interests of our students while also ensuring their safety."
