Creating an inclusive and welcoming community

July 15, 2016

Dear CCRI community,

The recent incidents of violence in Minnesota, Louisiana and Dallas have brought about a profound sense of loss for those communities and for the many family, friends and neighbors who will continue to grieve the absence of loved ones. These incidents have also heightened our awareness and given pause to the entire nation and to all of us here at CCRI.
Our greatest strength lies in our diversity. The Community College of Rhode Island must remain steadfast in our belief that the harms suffered today can be mitigated by our collective hard work and our hopes for a better tomorrow. As New England’s largest community college, it is our responsibility to educate and prepare our next generation of leaders, and those leaders must come from all of our communities.  
We encourage you to take advantage of CCRI’s resources, including our newly hired director of diversity and inclusion, the Office of Student Life, Gender Equity Initiative and other staff and faculty members who are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming community.
When the fall semester begins, we will be reaching out across the communities we serve to provide opportunities for people to come together to build an even stronger, more inclusive Rhode Island. It is my hope that our college will play a key role in this important conversation taking place on our campuses, in our communities and across the country, and we encourage you to join us.
President Hughes
