SEU campus in the fall

Saint Elizabeth University practices equal opportunity with respect to its students and its employees. No one will be denied employment at or admission to Saint Elizabeth University based on sex, race, creed, color, religion, disability, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or national origin.

SEU does not discriminate based on any of the aforementioned protected bases in the recruitment and admission of students, the recruitment and employment of faculty and staff, and the operation of any of its programs and activities as specified by federal and state law and regulations.

Saint Elizabeth University complies with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits all recipients of federal funds from discriminating based on gender in its educational programs and activities. SEU also prohibits harassment based on sex, race, or other listed above and prohibits sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or other violence against its students and employees. Any of these acts or other acts of violence will not be tolerated.

The University will respond promptly, fairly, and impartially to all harassment, sexual assault, or violence complaints. This policy applies to all members of the Saint Elizabeth University community. It describes an individual's rights as a student or employee with respect to sexual or other forms of harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and/or stalking. The Title IX Policy has been revised to improve its organization and formatting and to align the policy with new regulations recently released by the federal government.

  • Revising the definitions of stalking, dating/domestic violence, sexual harassment, and sexual assault to comply with the recent federal regulations.
  • Consent for sexual activity;
  • Clarifying the role of an advisor during the complaint resolution process; and
  • Adjusting investigative timelines to be consistent with new regulations.

Our policy remains within the parameters established by federal and state law, including:

We will continue to use a "preponderance of the evidence" standard to determine whether the facts support a finding of responsibility for violating our sexual misconduct policies. This is consistent with the standard we use for other policy violations.

Saint Elizabeth University is also committed to promptly, impartially, and equitably addressing and resolving all sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual misconduct reports. When the University discovers that such behavior has occurred, we will take steps to stop the behavior, prevent its recurrence, and remedy its effects.

Creating a safe campus environment and a culture of respect is the shared responsibility of all Saint Elizabeth University community members. This must continue to be among our highest priorities.

Responsible Employee

Any information regarding an incident of sexual misconduct that is shared with Saint Elizabeth University employees is required to be reported to the University Title IX Coordinator.  Faculty and staff who have questions regarding their obligation to report or would like to consult about a concern should contact the Title IX Coordinator.


Saint Elizabeth University is a member of the SUNY Student Conduct Institute.  Much of Saint Elizabeth's training, documentation, policies, and guidance comes from membership within the collective.
