Dear Community College Colleagues,

We ask that your college participate in a National Moment of Silence in honor of the victims of the shooting at Umpqua Community College.  Please join us this Thursday, October 8, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. (PT)/2:00 p.m. (ET) in observing a moment of silence.

As a show of solidarity and support for our friends and colleagues who are working tirelessly to pick up the pieces on the UCC campus, please use the #IamUCC hashtag and share your support via social media.  Please encourage your students, staff, and faculty to participate in these efforts and let’s show Umpqua that we all stand with them as they begin the process of healing their campus community.

Thanks in advance to all of you for supporting Umpqua Community College.
