MSJC Message of Support for Ukraine


Dear Eagles,
As the invasion of Ukraine continues, we at Mt. San Jacinto College send our support for those fighting to preserve freedom, democracy, and sovereignty in their country. As the pandemic taught us, we are members of a global society and events in one part of the world have consequences for all of us.
As an institution of higher learning, we encourage discussion and exploration of Europe's history, the former Soviet Union, the Cold War, and the implications for the United States.
We know that many in our own college community may need support during this time. We encourage you to hold space for each other and to seek out help on our campuses.

The California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office provided this information: Below is a list of organizations vetted by several reputable U.S. news organizations providing humanitarian aid to people in Ukraine. The Ukrainian people are standing for democracy, and we must stand with them.
