Our faculty and staff have been in touch with their students (and one another) over the last few weeks, as we have dealt with a major incident of racial bias and hatred on this campus, and a polarizing national election. Many are eager to assure all students that they are safe, valued members of this community.
Here is a listing of excellent resources for your use and referral. Please contact your division's Associate Dean with any questions, concerns, feedback, or additional ideas.
Despite any philosophical or political differences, our common goal as a College is to ensure that all members of our community feel safe, valued and engaged on our campus, so that they may reach their full potential and do their best work during their time with us.
