Friends and Family of SUNY Broome,

As national dialogue continues around the state’s right to determine to what extent we are required to support an individual’s gender identity, we must continue to show our commitment to educate, both academically and personally, all SUNY Broome community members on the benefits of having a campus that embraces diversity and multiculturalism. It is our duty to create and act as role models for inclusivity while allowing all individuals an equal opportunity to flourish. Our support for all of our faculty, staff, and students is unwavering. We WILL continue to welcome individuals of all identities to SUNY Broome, and I will serve as an advocate to best ensure that all community members feel comfortable about being themselves while here.

If, at any point, you do not feel comfortable going into a restroom, locker room, or any other gender-identified location on campus please ask me, or anyone wearing an #IllGoWithYou button, to walk in with you.  While New York State Human Rights Law continues to identify gender identity as a protected class, we will do more than protect.  We will welcome, embrace, support, and serve all individuals.
With confidence,

Scott Schuhert

Dean of Students and Title IX Coordinator
