Louis M. Spiro
Interim Vice President for Administration and Finance
Lou was a member of The College at Brockport community for over 33 years until retiring in 2012. Starting as the Director of Institutional Research in 1979, he became the Assistant Vice President for Finance and Management in 1995, and the Vice President for Administration and Finance in 2004.
An "active retirement" then began with an immediate six month assignment as the Interim Executive Director of the Brockport Auxiliary Services Corporation. This was followed by several volunteer positions at Temple B'rith Kodesh in Rochester, New York: Synagogue President for two years, Interim Executive Director for one year and Campaign Coordinator for one year. Other board memberships have included the Rochester Jewish Federation, the Rochester Synagogue Council and the Farash Foundation Jewish Advisory Council.
Returning after nearly six years to The College at Brockport as the Interim Vice President for Administration and Finance is a fascinating opportunity to look at the College from a new perspective and to make some changes and recommendations that will make it easier for the next Vice President to be successful. At the same time, some things do remain the same, as my goals are to help the Administration and Finance staff to be successful and to work closely with my Cabinet colleagues and the President so that The College at Brockport can continue to be successful.
