May 31 Investiture Canceled

Carlos O. Cortez

San Diego Community College District Chancellor Carlos O. Cortez shares the following statement regarding the chancellor’s investiture, a free public event that was to be held May 31 at Petco Park:

“Over the past few weeks, concerns have been expressed about the political beliefs and writings of the investiture keynote speaker, Alice Walker. At the same time, others have expressed their support of Ms. Walker. As a district that celebrates inclusion, we believe the best way forward would be to cancel the event altogether. I apologize for the pain caused to any member of our community. The investiture scheduled for May 31 will not be held.”
