    Dear Mendocino College Community, 

    Our country is facing very challenging events. While we weather the COVID-19 storm, I am saddened and worried about the even larger and historical challenges we are being reminded of this week. The events of the past two weeks, including the racist killing of George Floyd, remind us of the perseverance of racism. Perhaps, for some of us, it could be easy to feel distant from the rest of the country’s strife in our relatively peaceful rural counties. However, our own local social fabric is woven by its own historical and structural racism.

    Mendocino College Interim Superintendent/President Eileen Cichocki announced today that the college will hold classes in the fall “primarily” online. According to Cichocki, “This decision is made with the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and community in mind. This was a very difficult decision, but after speaking with faculty leadership, deans, the Vice President of Academic Affairs and others, it became clear that it was best to make the decision as soon as possible to allow time for thoughtful planning for the fall schedule to take place.”
