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.

This webpage is intended to serve as a resource for students, faculty, and staff who are interested in becoming more engaged with the election in November 2016. It is a collection of relevant information and campus activities (by any association, department or division) that relate to the upcoming election.

This collaborative effort is thanks to a campus-wide coordinating committee represented by these units (in alphabetical order):

Academic Affairs  
American Democracy Project
Associated Students, Inc.
Community Engagement
Office of Diversity, Educational Equity and Inclusion
