A message from president & CEO, Dr. Carrie Besnette Hauser

At this very sad time, and on behalf of the entire Colorado Mountain College community, I share my deepest condolences with the Umpqua Community College family.  I cannot begin to rationalize or comprehend this tragedy, but stand firmly with those responding to and grieving about the senseless actions of yesterday.

As a rural institution with deep community roots much like Umpqua, I can only imagine the toll this tragedy is taking on its local residents and law enforcement officials, students, faculty, staff, and others.  Though there is little we can do directly, please join me in extending our thoughts and prayers to the people and community of Roseburg.  We share in their mission, passion, and, at this tragic time, in their grief.
