You can’t make this stuff up. Here is a campus-wide message sent out to all University of California students, staff and employees today in the wake of Donald Trump’s election. It is from UC President Janet Napolitano and the UC chancellors.
President Janet Napolitano and the Chancellors of the University of California today (Nov. 9) issued the following statement:
In light of yesterday’s election results, we know there is understandable consternation and uncertainty among members of the University of California community. The University of California is proud of being a diverse and welcoming place for students, faculty, and staff with a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Diversity is central to our mission. We remain absolutely committed to supporting all members of our community and adhering to UC’s Principles Against Intolerance. As the Principles make clear, the University “strives to foster an environment in which all are included” and “all are given an equal opportunity to learn and explore.” The University of California will continue to pursue and protect these principles now and in the future, and urges our students, faculty, staff, and all others associated with the University to do so as well.
We are proud of what the University of California stands for and hope to convey that positive message to others in our state and nation.

The message that they are conveying is that, first, they do not like the election result, and second, they consider their community to be made up of a bunch of scared toddlers who need to hide under Mommy’s skirt because there is some big bad boogeyman (Trump) running around out there. What kind of Leaders of Tomorrow do they think they are producing?
