Given the emotions that have been expressed at college and university campuses nationwide recently, the college wanted to reaffirm our long-held core values of excellence, respect and a commitment to students and diverse communities. We want to assure you, members of the college community, that we will act in accordance with these values moving forward.
For over a hundred years, the college has been and will continue to be a college community that provides safe and welcoming environments and campuses for all our students, faculty, staff and the community. We are grateful to the valuable role that faculty and staff play in taking good care of our students and guests, for which we are grateful.
We realize that recent news has individuals concerned and trying to understand the impact of the events in the world in which we live. Please refer our students who might have a need to address these current issues to our counselors to discuss such concerns. Staff who need to address concerns may reach out to the Employee Assistance Program.
As we progress through the semester, we all must strive to live up to our values of commitment to diversity and respect. No matter what happens outside our institution, we are all in this together … and we are all here for each other.
