Lincoln Land Community College is committed to respect and compassion as we celebrate the differences among people, cultures and ideas. These are included in our stated values and should guide all that we do. As our country and our communities grapple with the senseless death of George Floyd and others before him, it is time for us as a college community to reaffirm our commitment to equity and inclusion. These have to move well beyond aspirations to practices that are engrained in all that we do.
I cannot begin to comprehend the sadness, sense of loss, or anger that our African American community is experiencing. I do know that it will take all of us working together to continue to build a learning and working environment that is free from all forms of harassment and discrimination.
