SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras was at SUNY New Paltz Friday to review mandatory COVID-19 testing for students. The so-called exit testing is required of students before they leave for Thanksgiving and complete the rest of the semester remotely.

Just-appointed SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras toured the SUNY New Paltz campus Sunday, the day before classes began. While there, he announced the launch of a statewide grant and internship program to accelerate personal protective equipment, or PPE, production across SUNY. SUNY New Paltz President Donald Christian accompanied Malatras, and spoke with WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne about the tour and initiative.

Following more than a year-and-a-half of discussion, the State University of New York at New Paltz is poised to rename buildings in one of its complexes. The College Council voted unanimously this week to assign new names to six buildings whose names are connected with slave owners. The college’s president supports the move.
