Albany, NY – State University of New York Chancellor Jim Malatras announced today SUNY-wide standards for violators of COVID-19 safety protocols to strengthen penalties for reckless behavior and non-compliance. The comprehensive policy, drafted in consultation with campuses across the system, provides new uniform rules for campus leadership, and is designed to help SUNY's campuses protect the public health of students, faculty, staff, and community members, and ensure campuses can remain open during the pandemic. Student violators now face immediate academic and housing suspension, as well as possible dismissal, and student organizations in non-compliance face a permanent campus ban.
