Greetings Golden Eagles,

Hundreds of faculty and staff have worked tirelessly to adjust our campus operations for your safe return this fall. We can’t wait to welcome you back to Brockport.  The health and safety of all students has been our primary focus in preparation for your return.  The following are some important reminders and expectations that will allow us to have a productive and safe semester:

Abide by the Social Distancing and Face Covering Policy

  • It will be strictly enforced and result in referrals to Student Conduct for disciplinary action. We know you will be excited to reunite with your friends, and meet new friends, but do not host or attend large gatherings. That is how we are seeing Covid-19 spread across the country and affect all age groups.  Sanctions for violating SUNY Brockport policies and directives of college officials may include removal from campus housing and/or conduct suspension, as well as parent notification.
  • Failure to abide by the Code of Student Conduct, including new safety policies and state requirements, may jeopardize your ability to be a student at Brockport. Since that’s not in anyone’s best interest, we hope you will avoid putting yourself in that scenario.

Report Your Concerns

If and when you have concerns about social distancing and/or face covering that are unresolved, please submit those concerns via the online reporting form. Our goals is to use those concerns to improve your overall experience this semester. 

Student Training Video

Navigating campus will be different, so we have prepared a training video that will help you have a better sense of what campus will be like.  It is our expectation that you will watch this video before returning to campus.

Pre-Arrival Checklist

Complete the pre-arrival requirements, outlined in a previous message to all students. 

On-Campus Procedures

If you live on campus, become familiar with new residential life policies and procedures.

Off-Campus Students

Please read this letter from Brockport Mayor Margay Blackman and visit our newly-created webpage for other key information and resources.

I am confident that you know how important it is for everyone to do their part and follow the safety guidelines, to protect each other and our community.  We all have a role to play towards ensuring the health of our campus community and we are asking for your help to do your part so we can have an in-person experience this fall.

Again, we look forward to seeing you back on campus.


Dr. Katy Wilson
