With the start of a new school year, we all need to be aware of the current atmosphere of hatred and separation that is being promoted by the current administration in our nation. I have always loved the University of La Verne’s acceptance and inclusivity; it is important that we all work to create an atmosphere of openness and peace for all our students and faculty, regardless of sexual orientation, ethnicity, spiritual beliefs, etc. We are here to learn and to teach, not to promote hatred and exclusion. Peace and equality to all.
