Resolution of Support and Commitment to All Students at MPC

Post Date:12/19/2016 4:42 PM
We realize that many students may be experiencing emotional reactions or heightened anxiety as a result of rhetoric on the national level related to draconian changes to our nation’s immigration policies.  At this juncture, it is important that we communicate clearly that MPC is redoubled in its resolve to fulfill our mission of education – and to provide that education to all students regardless of immigration status.  MPC values our diverse student and workforce population. This is a college of inclusion. A college that creates “safe spaces” so our students can be challenged and grow. The national conversation will not change our mission nor our resolve to teach and support – so our students can learn.  

MPC supports the academic and career goals of all of our students through our educational and student services programs. These quality programs will continue to be offered to our “Dream Act Students” on an ongoing basis.  To emphasize our commitment to the California Dream Act students at MPC (current and future), the MPC Board of Trustees held a special meeting on Wednesday, 12/14/2016, to publicly and formally voice their support.

Our mission is to support student success for everyone.  In an effort to support our students and campus community we would like to make you aware that support sessions have been scheduled that may assist individuals with their ability to handle anxieties related to post-election concerns, or others.  We will announce the days, times and locations of these sessions as soon as they are confirmed.  Again, MPC is a safe space for all students.  Additionally, we are providing a list of resources that was sent by the Chancellor's Office to share with all of our MPC family.

The MPC Leadership Team would like to thank the entire MPC community (faculty, staff and students) for creating a safe and inclusive environment at Monterey Peninsula College. We are a great institution and one with a rich history of providing our diverse communities a high-quality education enriched with extraordinary student support. This has not changed.

 


Thank you,
Dr. Walt Tribley
