Statement on Black Life Matters

The Center for Service-Learning and Public Service stands in solidarity with members of our community who have suffered injustices. The killing of black lives and the subsequent Black Life Matters uprising in the midst of a global pandemic, underscores the important work that we as a nation and college must undertake in order to eradicate centuries of racial injustices and biases, in order to create a more just and sustainable society. We pledge to continue our work of strengthening Evergreen Valley College ties to our local communities by forging important partnerships with local non-governmental agencies and creating meaningful service opportunities for our students to address critical social problems impacting our communities. We will continue to advocate for the implementation of inclusive and socially responsible teaching and learning opportunities for our campus community.
