The head of the SUNY system has written to Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren, responding to concerns she has raised about diversity issues at the College at Brockport.

Warren wrote to SUNY Chancellor Kristina Johnson late last month, expressing what she called her “grave concern and frustration” about the situation involving former Chief Diversity Officer Cephas Archie.

Archie was fired last month, although Brockport officials say they were not able to provide detail over why he was let go, because it was a personnel matter.

Throughout the State University of New York system, an estimated 35% to 45% of students don't have regular access to food.

As of December 2018, all SUNY universities and colleges have food pantries on campus, but a SUNY food insecurity task force is looking at other ideas to address the problem.

Among them, according to John Graham, association provost for student affairs, is a program called Single Stop.
