President Hetherington Responds to January 6 Threats on Democracy
As we returned for the winter session, I imagine we all hoped for a better year ahead, and yet yesterday’s violent unrest in our capital – the very seat of our democracy – was a stark reminder that our nation continues to face unprecedented challenges. Political division, social injustice, and a global pandemic have caused a constant state of upheaval in our lives. As we watch scenes unfold on the news, their proximity to our campus and your homes can be unsettling, so the college makes resources available to help you through this time.
If you need help, the college offers free telecounseling appointments to students. Call 443-518-1340 to schedule your appointment. If you or someone you know is experiencing a crisis, call Grassroots Crisis Center at 410-531-6677, or text the word HOME to 741741 to immediately connect with a crisis counselor.
It is important that we take care of ourselves mentally and physically right now. If you need assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out. There is so much for our nation to overcome, and yet I continue to remain optimistic about our future because of you. In its 50 years, this college has been a beacon of hope for both employees and students who are committed to creating a better, more equitable world for all of us.
