Statement by NWACC President Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson Regarding Racial and Social Injustice
Dear college community,
I stand in unity with numerous leaders and communities throughout the U.S. and the world in expressing deep sorrow and compassion over the tragic death of George Floyd. We are committed to the principles of social justice as demonstrated by our mission of empowering lives, inspiring learning, and strengthening community by providing accessible, affordable and quality education to all people.
NWACC strives to offer a safe and inclusive environment for students, employees and community members. Our institution continues to be strengthened by embracing diversity, encouraging participation, and rejecting discrimination, while offering equal access to a quality education.
During these difficult times, we must stay united and support each other by reaching out to your professors, classmates, colleagues, friends and family. If you are feeling overwhelmed, I encourage you to take advantage of the college’s free counseling and wellness services for students and employees.
May we all be the positive change needed to strengthen the unity of our nation.
- NWACC President Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson
