Leaders of the Independent Colleges of Washington, the Washington State Council of Presidents, and the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges issued the following statement on Jan. 6, 2021.

“As leaders of public and private, not-for-profit colleges and universities in the state of Washington, we stand strongly together in denouncing today's attack on the U.S. Capitol and on democracy. Since the earliest days of this nation, higher education has prepared an engaged, informed and civic-minded citizenry. In this way, our shared mission is fundamental to democracy and is in sharp contrast to the shocking scenes that unfolded in Washington, DC. Collectively, we redouble our commitment to preparing our students and future generations to help ensure that our democracy continues to thrive.”

Signed:

  • Paul Francis, Executive Director
    Washington State Council of Presidents
  • Terri Standish-Kuon, Ph.D., President & CEO
    Independent Colleges of Washington
  • Jan Yoshiwara, Executive Director
    Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges
