College leaders are facing numerous campus climate challenges. As bastions of thought, debate, community, and engagement, small colleges must prepare for the impact of another polarizing presidential election.
Voicing political opinions is an integral part of the student experience, and for many of our students, the 2020 presidential election may be the first time they will cast their ballots. Both during and after one of the most contentious and partisan elections that college students will have witnessed thus far, student affairs leaders will be called upon to engage in and model respectful actions and political discourse.
Nearly a month after the election, what is the state of our campus climates? How have our colleges addressed the election results and their impact on our students? How have election results affected students’ engagement with campus issues, college faculty, and staff? This live briefing will provide insights into how leaders at small colleges and universities have responded to the election and its aftermath in the midst of an already challenging time in higher education.
