    Solidarity Statement

    Colorado College is and has always been a home away from home for students, staff, and faculty. Without the people who fill our classrooms, cafeterias, offices, event spaces, studios, and corridors, this campus community could not exist. As staff members of Colorado College, members of the Colorado Springs community, and most importantly, as members of the human race, we condemn the hateful activity with which we are now associated. 

    We, the undersigned staff members of Colorado College, wish to express our solidarity with our students and faculty in standing against any and all efforts to divide our community. We condemn the inappropriate and divisive words sent via email last week, and commit ourselves to respecting and honoring each other as we move through our work here on campus and in life in order to build and better our diverse community.

    We honor the appreciation that CC holds for the value and diversity that each individual brings to our campus. Our message today is to support the members of our community who were harmed by the callous and insensitive words of the anonymous author who emailed our students, alumni, faculty, and staff members. Staying true to our belief that everyone on this campus brings experiences and insights that make us all better, we maintain that attacks on any one of us is an attack on our community as a whole. We stand alongside one another for the furtherance of the college mission, and we similarly stand alongside one another to create a world of leaders who articulate with intelligence the thoughts and ideals that transform and transcend the limited concepts of elitism and hate. To do this, we must honor each culture, each community, each perspective, and each person who walks our campus grounds to ensure that Colorado College remains a community united. 

    Racism in any form is unacceptable. Bigotry in any form is unacceptable. Discrimination in any form is unacceptable. We will be vocal. We will stand in solidarity with victims. We will break down barriers meant to divide us. We will continue to lift up our community. With this message of support, we encourage one another to come together and grow our relationships, to be creative in helping one another heal, and to be solid supports for those still reeling under the weight of this directed attack.
