A message from Dorsey L. Kendrick, Gateway Community College President
Welcome to Gateway Community College, where we strive to provide a learning environment where all students feel accepted and safe as they pursue their edcuational goals.
Recent events indicate many anticipated challenges for higher education over the next few years, and in discussions with many of my colleagues I have found that we share sense of optimism along with our concerns.
This as a time for all of us to stay focused and unwavering in our commitment to our country, our values, our communities, and to each other. Above all, we must continue to show compassion for all people as stay focused on our core values of respect, love, kindness and inclusion of all people regardless of race, creed, color, sexual orientation or beliefs.
We should not become lackadaisical or complacent. We must use our voices to speak out and speak up on issues that may impede our ability to provide access to education.
In conclusion, we must continue to, “Fight until hell freezes over for what is right. And when things freeze over, we must continue to fight on the ice,” (Rolland Martin) with our voices and influence.
I wish you a great holiday season, a wonderful semester, and a hopeful future!
