OREGON CITY – Clackamas Community College Board of Education statement on recently revealed social media posts by Clackamas County Commissioner Mark Shull:

"As an open-access institution of higher education, Clackamas Community College's door is open to everyone. All are welcome at CCC. It is not only our belief, but it is our policy to prohibit discrimination of any kind.

At Clackamas Community College, we strive to address, explore, educate, learn about, and respond to the diversity of the world around us. We also create space for students to learn about diverse perspectives while teaching critical thinking, empathy, and respect of others with differing points of view.

As elected officials, we represent the college and the diverse community in Clackamas County. Our students, our alumni, and their families come from some of the broadest bands of socioeconomic and ethnographic populations, but they all have one common goal – to invest in their education and their future.

Our mission is to provide high-quality education to all members of our community. Further, our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is to make CCC a place where all feel welcome, supported, and empowered. We will not compromise on these overarching values.
