Post-Election Activities at UI
This year’s presidential election has been one of the most divisive in history. The negative tenor of endless television ads, social media posts, and the election itself have impacted many, regardless of political preference.
We are committed to supporting our students, staff, and faculty by providing spaces to come together for contemplation and brave conversations where civility, listening, and respect are the norm. Now is the time for our community to reaffirm our value of diversity and inclusion. Our diversity—in identity, ideas, and perspectives—is what makes us strong.
Below is a list of connection and conversation spaces as well as a list of resources. Please check back as more events and resources become available.
Dr. Georgina Dodge
Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice President
Title IX Coordinator
