Post-Election Resources and Events
While this emotionally charged election cycle has come to an end, members of our campus community have continued emotion regarding the transition of leadership in our country. At CSUSM, we are united in our commitment to providing a safe and welcoming campus for everyone.
We have a number of post-election events planned to provide our campus community opportunities to come together to discuss and evaluate election results and share perspectives. Additionally, our Student Health and Counseling Services office is available to provide support services.
Reflect, Heal, Listen
Nov. 9 & Nov. 10 – All Day
The Latin@Center is hosting a post-election conversation, “Reflect, Heal, Listen.” The Latin@ Center will be open all day for members of the campus to dialogue, listen, heal and come together as a community.
Post-Election Faculty Panel: Perspectives from Across the Disciplines
Nov. 10 – Noon to 1:30 p.m.
What is the short- and long-term impact of this election? What has this election done to the stability of, and our faith in the integrity of, some of our fundamental democratic institutions — the election process itself, the news media, polling, the primary election process, etc. What is the future of the two major parties? Has our political dialogue been irreparably coarsened? Will our electorate become even more polarized? What does this election mean for foreign policy and our relationships with other countries? These are just some of the questions we would like to discuss.
Conversations that Matter Series - Students and Civic Engagement: Using Your Voice
Nov. 15 – 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Kellogg Library Reading Room
Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez and Dr. Stephen Nichols will discuss the importance of student voter participation and civic engagement. Students will learn of the various ways in which they can engage in our democratic processes and become a voice for their communities. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and share their ideas. This event is sponsored by the Office of Diversity, Educational Equity, and Inclusion in partnership with the Office of Legislative Affairs and Associated Students, Inc. Refreshments will be served.
