President's Statement Regarding Colorado Springs Shooting
November 21, 2022
Following yet another act of violence in another community in our state, we find ourselves searching for ways to express our anger, sympathies and grief. The events over the weekend in Colorado Springs have rocked our collective sense of humanity and safety, no more so than for our LBGTQ+ friends, family and neighbors.
In the face of this latest tragedy, and on behalf of the entire Colorado Mountain College community, we must — once again — find ways to speak and act with our hearts. To lead with kindness and love. To lean in to support others. To treat every person with grace and respect. To denounce hate. Together, we will continue to create the conditions that lead to equity, opportunity and hope for everyone.
Carrie Besnette Hauser, Ph.D.
