York College affirms our longstanding institutional values, including our commitment to diversity and inclusion. In adherence with the CUNY Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination Policy, York does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, genetic information, disability, veteran status, or any other protected characteristic. It is essential that we remain supportive, respectful, and inclusive to all members of our campus community at all times.
There has been an increase in acts of bullying and violence directed towards certain ethnicities and cultures, both in the public and at other institutions. Such acts can be perpetuated in person or online. We remind you to be aware of assumptions and prejudice, and to act in a respectful manner to individuals within our diverse campus community, regardless of the medium of interaction. Community standards that promote a culture of respect are just as applicable in the online learning environment as they are in our buildings and community.
As we move to distance, remote, and online learning alternatives, York and CUNY conduct policies remain in effect. Acts of discrimination, harassment or exclusion run counter to our institutional values and are contrary to CUNY Policy. If you witness or experience an incident of discrimination or harassment, you are encouraged to contact the Office of Diversity and Compliance at (718) 262-5304, or by email at email@example.com.
As always, if you are on campus and in immediate danger, please contact Public Safety at x2222.
We currently have custodians restocking hand sanitizers, soaps and other cleaning supplies and ensuring spaces are clean. We are shifting two of the custodial evening crew to help support this effort. Signage has been posted around campus regarding proper hygiene (washing hands and covering coughs, etc.) and about the virus. Should you experience a bathroom facility, or sanitizer stand that is not properly stocked, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will dispatch someone to address the issue.
We understand that members of the college community may be anxious during this time. For free, confidential counseling services, please contact the York College Counseling Center at 718-262-2272. For faculty and staff, CUNY Work/Life Program is available to help.

Staff and Faculty, as we draw closer to the start of an increasingly in-person Fall 2021 semester, I want to share details of an important piece of the University’s reopening plan that mandates regular testing for anyone who is unvaccinated or who chooses not to disclose their vaccination status.
