SUNY Brockport

College at Brockport

The chief diversity officer at The College at Brockport has apparently been fired, and it’s resulted in a barrage of criticism of that move on social media.

The Democrat and Chronicle says that Cephas Archie confirmed that he was fired on Friday.

A spokesman for the college, John Follaco issued a statement saying that:

Office of NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo

Governor Andrew Cuomo is unveiling a $300 million plan to “reimagine” the Erie Canal by creating recreational activities to boost tourism, mitigate flooding, enhance irrigation and recreational fishing and restore wetlands.

It’s part of Cuomo’s upcoming State of the State address and the governor is recommending the New York Power Authority Board, which oversees the Canal Corporation, approve the $300 million investment over the next five years.

An extensive search in the Adirondacks for a missing SUNY Brockport student yielded no new clues as to his whereabouts.

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports several personal items belonging to Colin Gillis were found during a search along Route 3 in Tupper Lake.

Gillis had just returned home to the area on spring break from Brockport State when he went missing after leaving a party.
