Message to the College Community

Dear College Community,

I hope that this email meets you in good health and spirits which I know given the events in recent days is becoming increasingly difficult.  My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims of yet another senseless act of violence in Colorado as they are each time I hear about another act of violence across our city.   In my thoughts also are our loved ones and friends who are battling COVID-19 as well as those who have loss their fight.

It is difficult to find the right words at a time like this. But I will tell you as told you before,  I know that our work is critical to developing engaged citizens of the world who value human life in all its diverse beauty.  As hard as it maybe, especially at times like this, I need you to know and remember that your work is making a difference.  That's just not me saying this, the students say so. On the Students Town Hall Zoom yesterday, students, in the midst of the issues the are trying to resolve and difficulties they are having in these first few weeks of the semester, paused to say thank you all that we are doing to support them.  Psychology faculty also got a special shout out from a student who shared that the work is intense, but the faculty are great. This is what keeps me going everyday: the greatness at KCC and the greatness of KCC.  We can and are making a difference.

If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Human Resources for information about available services. 

Thank you for lending me your ear,

-President Schrader
