A student attending California’s Citrus College forwarded us an email today from the School’s President. The unfortunately coiffed Geraldine M. Perri lends her support to the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Statement calling Trump’s repeal of DACA “heartless and senseless”, and encourages students to “offer kindness and compassion” to students who might “be feeling anxious”.
I encourage all members of the Citrus College community to offer kindness and compassion to those among us who may be feeling anxious or disenfranchised. Please keep in mind that our college’s student-centered team includes supportive faculty and staff to help students achieve their educational goals in a safe and supportive environment. I would also like to remind the college community that on January 17, 2017, the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees adopted Resolution No. 2016-17-06: Citrus Community College District Resolution of Support of Students and its Commitment to Access, Affordability, Diversity and Inclusion.
Perry failed to mention the cost of providing these services, which academic units did not receive the funding that was instead earmarked for assisting illegal immigrants, nor did she encourage compassion or kindness to the American students who failed to gain admittance to state funded universities like Citrus College.
According to the School’s website, integrity is one of their core missions, which they define as “[b]ehaving ethically in all interactions at all levels”. The ethics of Citrus College do not apparently include following the laws of the land or serving the citizens of the state and country that provides funding for the college to operate.
