Post November 8th Election Message to the College Community

I’ve had the opportunity to visit with, and read messages from, several staff and students after the November 8th election.  It will take some time to really grasp the full implications of a President Trump administration.  It is imperative, in the aftermath of a highly fractious election, that we continue to embrace our most important obligation as a college community.

Our responsibility is to remain steadfastly committed to education, critical thinking, intellectual truth and to diversity, equity and inclusion.  I know that you would agree when I say that we are at our individual and collective best when we join together to engage respectfully, support EVERYONE who may feel marginalized, threatened or unwelcome and to pursue truth and understanding as staff and faculty of College of the Redwoods.  

I’ve heard several reports of members of our college community reaching out to one another offering support.  Thank you to everyone who is helping us come together. I ask that anyone who wants to schedule a post-election event please let the President’s Office know so we can support you and post the event on our web calendar.

Elections have always heralded a time of change for our country.  Our mission to  “…continually assess student learning and institutional performance and practices to embrace diversity, to encourage a healthy community environment…” takes on additional meaning in this time of change.

It is important that we all continue working together to serve our community and to make sure that College of the Redwoods will always be a welcoming and safe place for all members of society.
