As you know, there have been a series of incidents directed against Asian Americans in the United States.
I’m sharing a statement from the American Association of Community Colleges that best exemplifies where Lone Star College stands on this and any other form of discrimination and violence against others.
You might not know that 8.5% of Lone Star College students identify themselves as Asian American.
While we’ve had no specific issues at Lone Star College, I trust you would agree that there is no place for this in the United States. Faculty, this message will be shared with students but it would be helpful if you could reinforce the general notion that discrimination of any kind is detrimental to the basic tenets of our country.
