From the UC: "understandable consternation and uncertainty"



University of California statement on presidential election results:
UC Office of the PresidentWednesday, November 9, 2016

President Janet Napolitano and the Chancellors of the University of California today (Nov. 9) issued the following statement:

In light of yesterday's election results, we know there is understandable consternation and uncertainty among members of the University of California community. The University of California is proud of being a diverse and welcoming place for students, faculty, and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Diversity is central to our mission. We remain absolutely committed to supporting all members of our community and adhering to UC’s Principles Against Intolerance. As the Principles make clear, the University “strives to foster an environment in which all are included” and “all are given an equal opportunity to learn and explore.” The University of California will continue to pursue and protect these principles now and in the future, and urges our students, faculty, staff, and all others associated with the University to do so as well.

We are proud of what the University of California stands for and hope to convey that positive message to others in our state and nation.

President Janet Napolitano
University of California

The UC sent out this statement yesterday. How was it on campus? in your classroom? in your office? 

Rebel Girl hopes that the community colleges will do the same.

To contact the California Community Colleges Chancellors and Board of Governors and make your own request (Rebel Girl has already done so):

Christina N. Castro, Liaison to the Board of Governors and Consultation Council

Take care out there.

I dont recall them ever sending out anything like this when Obama was elected.

Janet's flawed statement left out the most important part, that she, the university, chancellor and board of regents respect and support the outcome of the Democratic process and expect the same of all UC students.

President-elect Obama did not threaten to deport undocumented students nor bar people of the Muslim faith from entering the country.

Obama may not have said it as president elect but he sure did encourage and stoke the flames or a race war.

Ignore Roy. 11:49 is absolutely correct. Good riddance Obama and Obamacare and illegal immigrants. I have zero problems with legal immigration. People that want to move to Canada are in for a rude awakening. They already have the immigration policies in place that Trump is suggesting!

I honestly don't think he was attempting to 'troll.' He was trying to dissent. But you wouldn't be interested in that sort of thing, would you?

They keep saying there needs to be comprehensive immigration reform. Why? Our laws are already clear. The problem is that some chose to break our laws, laws put on the books by citizens. Notice it's always the advocates for illegal immigration calling for reform? Hmmmm.
