|Amidst this environment of national rhetoric and fear, Cascadia College is emphasizing its commitment to the principles of pluralism, social justice, and cultural richness that guide our institution. We have these values so that all of our students can reach their fullest potential. We will not tolerate behaviors that serve to marginalize individuals or groups. Those who bully, direct hate, or incite violence will be held accountable. This is neither quick nor easy work. There is no one blueprint to guide colleges through such complexity and ambiguity. We are learning together, in real time, how best to respond to questions, provide comfort and safety, and hold space for those who are struggling to understand, while simultaneously protecting free speech.|
This page is dedicated to efforts on campus intended to:
- Provide opportunities for individuals to share their experiences and their fears in a safe setting
- Raise awareness of how our national climate and evolving policies affect us locally
- Direct individuals to campus resources
- Give administration information for developing responses or additional resources to help prevent instances of unwanted behavior
- Help us move forward and learn together
