Since 1969, the State Legislature has required colleges and universities to adopt rules for the maintenance of public order (Education Law, Section 6430). The State University adopted and later amended Public Order Rules. (See Official Compilation Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York, Title 8, Cat. 535).
In the event circumstances warrant use of the Rules for the Maintenance of Public Order, at the discretion of the president or designee, those involved are so notified and copies of the rules are made available.
The Rules for the Maintenance of Public Order are on file in the office of the Secretary of the State of New York. Copies may be obtained on campus from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Couper Administration Building Room 419. For most disciplinary infractions, however, the University Procedures for the Review of Student Conduct will be used to adjudicate cases of alleged violations of the Code of Student Conduct.
The rules and regulations pertaining to the maintenance of public order on State University campuses were adopted by the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York and ratified by the Binghamton Council. These rules and regulations are binding on all persons on University-controlled premises.
This policy can be found online on the SUNY University-wide Policies & Procedures website.
