Dear student leaders,
On July 7, 2015, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into legislation new mandates for sexual violence prevention on college campuses. As of October 5, 2015, colleges and universities in New York must require all student leaders and officers of student organizations recognized or registered with the institution, as well as those seeking recognition or registration, complete training on domestic violence, dating violence, stalking or sexual violence prevention prior to receiving recognition or registration (Article 129-B, Implementation by Colleges and Universities of Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking Prevention and Response, Policies, and Procedures).
This is to make you aware that all student leaders of organizations applying for registration (new or renewing) will be required to attest to completion of training for student officers. The required training will be conducted on-line for each officer via the Contracted Independent Organization form (CIO form - for Independent Organizations) or the Statement of Officer Compliance (for University Organizations). Officers listed as part of your registration or renewal will receive an email from OrgSync with instructions on how to complete the required form.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office in 521 Willard Straight Hall.
