Hello, Campus Community.
Campus Health is encouraging the CMCC community to participate in Pink Shirt Day -- a national anti-bullying campaign that was inspired by an act of kindness in a small town in Nova Scotia where two teenage boys organized a protest in their high school after witnessing a fellow classmate being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. As a result, the boys rallied other students to wear pink to school to show support and encouragement for their peer.
Bullying can take place online, in schools, homes and the workplace and may lead to mental health issues for those who experience it. Take a stand and show your support by wearing a Pink Shirt on Wednesday, February 23, 2022. Click on this video clip to hear a brief message from President Wickes on what CMCC is doing about this issue.
Finally, let’s take a moment to reflect upon our institutional commitment to uphold a safe and inclusive campus for all students and employees by reviewing CMCC’s Guidelines for Inclusive Language . These guidelines aim to educate the community on inclusive language and support the community in applying inclusive language in its everyday interactions. Please use this resource so that you may contribute positively to building a culture of inclusion and respect at CMCC.
