Message from President Lori Gaskin Regarding Umpqua Shooting

October 2, 2015

I know we stand together in sending our support to the students of Umpqua Community College and to our colleagues there.

College classrooms are bastions of thought. Our classrooms are sacred and safe places where the habit of the mind is discovered and explored. When that is violated in such a horrific way as with the tragedy at Umpqua, it is a call to action to redouble our efforts to support our students' educational goals, to intervene when they show signs of being at risk, and to be proactive in addressing their mental health and wellness needs.

Our thoughts are with all at Umpqua Community College,

Lori Gaskin
President, Santa Barbara City College
