Dear Members of ENCORE, 
Your Curriculum committee is trying to put together programs and courses that appeal to a broad audience. Whereas some of these offerings may be as tame as crocheting, others can be controversial. And where we encourage our instructors, old and new, to give our members a fair advance notice of the contents of their presentations, under the principle of Academic Freedom, we neither require an absolutely unbiased presentation nor censure our instructors and facilitators.

If you are exposed to subject matter and instructors whose bias you can’t share, you have the option of leaving. Short of that, we request that you respect the opinions of others just as you would expect others to respect yours.

For the Curriculum committee,
Reta Lindstrom, Chairperson
