Students and faculty of Roxbury Community College
United States of America

The Roxbury Community Center administration has currently proposed to implement a Criminal Correctional Center, which will be situated in the third floor of the Student Building.

To accomodate this new program, the RCC administration proposed to transform:
- the Student Center (which has the student activities offices)
- RCC bookstore
- Cafeteria,
- Faculty meeting room
...and transferring the advising offices.

In jusfitication for this immense change, the RCC administration claims that the government aid, provided by leasing a floor in the Student Building, will be used to renovate the building for this new program.

The RCC administration held an open forum on February 26th, 2008, to discuss this new program. However, the speakers failed to answer in depth our questions, and present us with substantial evidence that would make this new program attractive and beneficial to RCC students.

We, the undersigned, call on the Roxbury Community College administration to REJECT to this new program.

We, the community, feel that this new plan will NOT help our college and the student interests.

We do not oppose a correctional facility in general. However, we do not feel that Roxbury Community College Campus is an appropriate place for said facility.

The Say NO to The Proposed Correctional Facility at Roxbury Community College petition to Students and faculty of Roxbury Community College was written by T L and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
