A Letter from Washington State Community and Technical College Presidents

We value diversity, zero tolerance for unsafe campuses

Religious and racial tensions are high in the United States right now and our communities are feeling the effects deeply.

As presidents of Washington’s community and technical colleges we issue this clear response on behalf of our students and colleagues: We stand together. Harassment and prejudice of any type defies the very values of pluralism and religious freedom that we hold dear in this country.
