A call for sanctuary

Jane Close Conoley, President

September 20, 2017

Filed under Editorials, Opinions

A call for the campus to be a sanctuary represents to me a realistic and authentic need to feel and be safe. Such a call is evocative because there’s no doubt that those who currently do not have documentation of citizenship are being cruelly threatened by recent federal policy initiatives and rhetoric.   Our campus faculty, students, and leadership have been working tirelessly with state and federal representatives an...
