UUPers Invited to Participate in River Paddle on August 13

UUP is participating in a canoe/paddle this summer on Saturday, August 13 with a 2 PM departure time from the fishing/boat access in Portlandville on Route 28, just before the right turn/across the bridge turn to Wightman Lumber on Route 35A.

The paddle is non-competitive, open to the family and friends of UUP, publicized, approximately 5 miles round trip, start and return. Lot and street parking are available.
For those who would like to participate but don’t have a boat, canoe/kayak rentals are available immediately adjacent to the public fishing/boat access at Canoe & Kayak Rental and Sales at 2828 NYS Route 28, Portlandville, NY (607-286-7349).

The purpose is three-fold—raise public commitment to protecting our regional water resources, encourage participation in the recreational opportunities afforded us, and build solidarity.  Life jackets are mandatory, and sun screen is advised.  If you are interested in participating, email Bill Simons at William.Simons@oneonta.edu

Campus Community Forum to be held July 26

As a campus community, many of us continue to grapple with the recent incidents across our nation. The team in the Office of Equity and Inclusion believe that a forum for us to come together as a community to share concerns and thoughts would be important at this time. We hope we can continue to work toward meaningful dialogues for healing and change.

Although there are challenges ahead, we believe that we all can take care of each other and remain mindful of our role in shaping our campus community. We hope you can join us for this important conversation.

The forum will be held Tuesday, July 26th at noon in the Craven Lounge, Morris Conference Center. A light lunch will be served. For more information or to inform us of your attendance, please contact the Office of Equity and Inclusion at ext 2830.
