Messages from the President

RRCC Colleagues:

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, xenophobic and racist incidents targeting members of the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities have surged in the U.S. and around the world. Here is a link to an article and data from the National Institute of Health about anti-Asian hate crimes during the COVID-19 pandemic. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7364747/

Red Rocks Community College does not and will not tolerate any form of violence, harassment or racism against API individuals.

Students, faculty or staff who have been the victim of harassment, bullying or discrimination should fill out our Report A Concern form.

These reports are handled confidentially and as soon as they are received.

Active Bystander Intervention tools give us options for what to do if we are witness to an incident of harassment:
