Post-election listening sessions for students, faculty, staff and community

To help people process their responses to the election, UAA will offer structured online drop-in groups for gathering to share feelings, fears, needs and hopes. These groups will not be about arguing for positions or candidates, but rather a chance to share on a more personal level.

Election civility

We at UAA value every member of our community, including individuals of differing political persuasion, ethnic and racial identity, gender, sexual orientation, ability level, age, military status and more. We respect intellectual and political freedom and promote intellectual and political discourse. We expect our students, faculty, staff and administrators will treat each other with respect and decency, even as we disagree – sometimes intensely – about policies and candidates.
