          Statement on Name of 500万彩票网&amp; 杰斐逊 学院

          我们学院的名字,对他们来说,它被命名为那些肖像,提醒我们,我们的教育使命要求我们诚实地审视谁首先阐明我们的平等和不可剥夺的权利的国家价值观我们的国家和它的创始人的历史,但作为奴隶主,促成了持续的暴力和不公正自从由黑人忍着。我们力争从这段历史的学习和行动,以建立一个更加公正的社会,现在和未来。因为我们承认,乔治·500万彩票网和托马斯·杰斐逊辜负了他们雄辩支持的原则,诚信要求我们用同样的标准,来判断自己和我们这一代人的必须做更多工作,以保证黑人的命也是命和各成员黑人社区体验的平等权利和正义美国的承诺。

          自19 century 500万彩票网&amp; 杰斐逊 College has admitted and graduated outstanding Black students who have gone on to achieve success in many fields of endeavor.  We build on 日is longstanding commitment today by redoubling our efforts to eradicate racism wherever it is found – in our 学院 and in society at large – and to advocate for equality and justice for all Americans.

          在他2017年的就职演说中,总统约翰·C·。纳普声明:

          “The history, the mission, and, yes, the name of 500万彩票网&amp; 杰斐逊 学院 place us in a unique position to contribute to the national conversation about the state of our democratic republic.  In recent months, some college and university campuses have seen tensions flare over questions of free expression, and how to remember our history, and the meaning of our national creed that all people are created equal, that basic human rights are intrinsic and cannot be granted or withdrawn by others.  The nation’s founders understood that democratic values would always be aspirational, that we would inevitably fall short of them in various ways.  In their own time, this shortcoming was their failure to address slavery, which W&J’s Pennsylvania friend [and benefactor] Benjamin Franklin warned the first Congress was ‘an inconsistency [in] the character of 日e American people.’  Today we still must strive to make equality and human rights real for all people.”

          In this address, he announced plans for an annual Symposium on Democracy where the College takes a day off classes to explore timely issues in dialog with diverse perspectives of noteworthy thinkers and leaders.  At the inaugural symposium in 2018, President Knapp invited a faculty panel to lead a discussion of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from the perspective of the 21st century.  The fourth symposium, in 2021, will again examine these and other questions relevant to racial justice and equality.  Our professors, as well, address these issues in their classrooms, in class projects, and in their research.  It is the mission of 500万彩票网&amp; 杰斐逊 学院 to prepare graduates to be leaders who serve the common good by confronting critical issues affecting 日e well-being of our society.
