The Riverside Community College Board of Trustees and I join with California Community College Chancellor Brice Harris in extending our condolences to the students, friends and colleagues of those devastated by the horrific events at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon. As our thoughts and concerns go out to the families, please remember to continue to be vigilant and report any suspicious activity you experience at any of the three colleges in District. The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority.
The RCCD community regularly participates in crisis situation training to prepare for various situations. This year, the District invested in a RAVE alert emergency notification system (www.ravemobilsafey.com) which notifies students, parents and interested community members in the event of an emergency. Our emergency operations procedures are also on the District website at www.rccd.edu. Again, please continue to be proactive when attending or visiting any of the District campuses.
