BROCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) - The chancellor of the State University of New York says she's taking steps to improve the racial climate at the College at Brockport in response to concerns raised by the mayor of Rochester and students.

In a letter to Mayor Lovely Warren Thursday, Chancellor Kristina Johnson said she would visit the western New York campus in the near future.

She said steps will be taken to improve the bias reporting process and that outside experts will be involved in creating a more inclusive and diverse environment.

The mayor raised her concerns after Brockport fired its chief diversity officer.

The college declined to give a reason, saying it was a confidential personnel matter.
