Subject: This Week

Issues involving free speech, freedom of the press, and religious tolerance and respect have been front page news around the world in recent weeks.  This week, similar conversations have occurred here at Century College.
Century College strives to be a welcoming place for all individuals in the college community.  The valued diversity of our community means that we may be confronted by ideas, statements, or publications with which we are not familiar or do not agree.  Colleges and universities have long been recognized as the “marketplace of ideas” in our country.  It is our hope that Century College can lead by example in having discourse about the many competing ideas and beliefs in a respectful, thoughtful, and tolerant manner and better equip us as members of both the local and global community.
