Our System’s success depends on making sure that all students feel welcome. Today, students and scholars from all over the world are a vital part of our community — bringing fresh perspectives and new ideas, leading clubs and organizations, and contributing to the vibrant diversity that we all value. This week, we honor the spirit of unity that is bringing neighbors together across our colleges from Los Angeles, California to Washington, D.C.
During Welcoming Week, I invite all TCS Education System students to join this movement of colleges nationwide by renewing our commitment to our core American values and by taking action in the spirit of welcoming. By working together, we can achieve greater understanding and make our System the kind of place where diverse people from around the world feel valued and can learn in harmony with their fellow students.
Regardless of where we are born or what we look like, we are students of TCS, united in our efforts to build a stronger global System and greater future. By recognizing the contributions that we all make to creating a vibrant culture, we create a more prosperous and inclusive community for all who call it home. Let us come together to build campuses where every student has the opportunity to contribute at his or her best. Let us come together to create more unified communities and to reaffirm that TCS Education System still stands as a beacon of education and opportunity. Now, therefore, I Dr. Michael Horowitz, by virtue of the authority vested in me as TCS Education System President, do hereby proclaim the week of September 14th, 2018, Welcoming Week. I call upon the people of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Pacific Oaks College and Children’s School, The Santa Barbara & Ventura Colleges of Law, Saybrook University, and Dallas Nursing Institute to join together to build stronger communities across Chicago, IL, Los Angeles, CA, Washington D.C., Pasadena, CA, San Jose, CA, Santa Barbara, CA, Ventura, CA, Oakland, CA, Seattle, WA, Dallas, TX, and every community in between and beyond that our colleges touch in service.
