Sexual Harassment


Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

The safety and well-being of all members of the Upstate Medical University community is our highest priority.

To this end, Upstate takes the issues of sexual harassment and sexual violence very seriously. We must do all that we can to prevent its occurrence and respond swiftly and appropriately when it does occur. Upstate stands with SUNY in taking a proactive approach to stop sexual harassment and sexual violence and assault through training and prevention programs.

To help create a safer campus environment for all students and employees, and to assist you in knowing your reporting responsibilities:
