Statement From MCCC President Dr. Jianping Wang on George Floyd Tragedy


WEST WINDSOR, N.J. – As we work hard together to fight the coronavirus pandemic, we are once again shocked by the senseless death of yet another African American man—Mr. George Floyd. Our nation is deeply divided at the time we need to be united to care for one another and to bring our economy and communities back.

It is important that we stand together to make our statement and to defend our American values of equality and justice for all. But it is even more important for us to do what we can to uphold those values. Each of us has a unique opportunity and obligation to make our mark during this very challenging time of our life. We do not have the luxury to wait for someone to lead us. Each of us must act now.

At Mercer County Community College, we promote equality and justice by empowering all through education. We stand in solidarity with those who condemn intolerance and acts of violence in all its forms. We are proud to serve as a beacon of hope, a source of strength, and a resource for those working toward a better future for themselves, for our community, and for our great state and nation.

In the coming days, we will be working with our community partners to find ways to unite our communities and bring hope to those who need it most. I welcome your ideas and suggestions. Together, we will overcome this challenge and emerge stronger and more united. History will judge us. So let us make it right for our future generations.
