Dear SUNY Broome community,

In accordance with the directives set forth by the Chancellor of the State University of New York, Chancellor Jim Malatras, the SUNY system has instituted a comprehensive directive to address violations of COVID-19 safety protocols occurring at SUNY’s state-operated campuses, statutory colleges, and community colleges. 

To effectuate a fair and consistent approach to policy violations by students at its State-operated, statutory colleges, and community colleges, the State University of New York has established a uniformed emergency directive to all state-operated and community college campuses.

Under this policy, all students maintain the due process rights guaranteed to them by the federal and New York State Constitutions, New York State law, SUNY regulations and University-wide and campus policies. Students are strongly encouraged to follow the reasonable requirements of wearing masks/coverings, socially distancing, avoiding crowds, presenting for COVID-19 testing, filling out daily digital health forms before arrival on campus, reporting positive test results, and following all directives of campus, local, and State health officials. 

This policy shall take effect at 8:00 a.m. on October 1, 2020. 

For a full description of the SUNY uniform sanctioning policy in Response to COVID-19 Student Violations, please visit the COVID-19 Conduct Protocol and Sanctions listed on the Student Conduct website, as well as the Reopening the Hive portion of our website.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Student Rights and Responsibilities Coordinator, Mr. Brandon Manning, or our interim AVP/ Dean of Students, Shelli Cordisco,
