Equitable Treatment

The chair will maintain a confidential record of internal and external complaints, charges, and litigation alleging violations of policies and procedures related to non-discrimination. The chair will refer the student to the appropriate office depending on the nature of the complaint, to the institution. The chair will bring those complaints which relate to accreditation to a program faculty meeting for discussion.

The University policy for Internal Complaints (depending on the nature of the complaint) is as follows:

Internal Complaints: Depending on the nature of the complaint, the person will be referred to the appropriate office. If there is a complaint related to Title IX, the Office of Equity and Access at https://www.stonybrook.edu/commcms/oea/ would be contacted and the person would file a complaint with them. See individual office websites below and/or Contact the Office of University Counsel 631- 632-6110 for records of complaints.

External Complaints:

a.) A discriminatory complaint would be the jurisdiction of the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity.

b.) A complaint concerning an employee would be the jurisdiction of the Office of Labor Relations.

c.) A complaint concerning a student would be the jurisdiction of the Office of Community Standards. The program will ensure that appropriate corrective action be taken when violations of compliance with nondiscrimination statues occur.

The program will follow the guidelines as instituted by the University and refer the person to the appropriate office. The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity (OIDE) is charged with the responsibility of monitoring these notices. Marjolie Leonard serves as the Senior Director for OIDE as well as the University’s Title IX and ADA Coordinator. To file a discrimination complaint, contact OIDE at 201 Administration Building, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794-0251, (631) 632-6280, oide@stonybrook.edu or visit http://www.stonybrook.edu/oide.
