Post-Election Responses and Continuing Civil Engagement

This guide is a helpful tool to help engage, discuss, reflect, and process what is a 2020 election year fraught with a challenging voting process, with major implications for our community, national, and global future on the ballot.

Health and Wellness

Student Health Center

  • The Student Health Center (SHC) provides free health service to all currently registered students regardless of your medical insurance plan.


University Counseling Services

  • Counseling Services provides a supportive environment where students can explore, change and grow at their own pace.


CARE Team (Connection, Advocacy, Resources, Education)

  • Committed to proactive and early intervention, the CARE Team supports students directly, as well as through consultation with campus partners. When necessary, the CARE Team also assesses risk of harm to the University community and coordinates appropriate action to ensure the safety of individual students and the University at large.


Dominican Dialogues: Post-Election Discussions

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has partnered with the Division of Public Affairs and the Diversity Action Group to host post-election discussions for students, faculty and staff.

The following nonpartisan safe spaces are available for our campus community Wednesday through Friday following the election: 

Student Discussions

  • Wednesday, Nov. 4, 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Join via Zoom
  • Friday, Nov. 6, 1:30-3 p.m. Join via Zoom

In these virtual, student-only spaces (with the exception of DAG facilitators and University counselors), students are welcome to drop in during any time to debrief and discuss in a communal safe environment.

Faculty and Staff Discussions

  • Thursday, Nov. 5, noon-1 p.m. Join via Zoom

Bring your lunch bag and any post-election baggage to share in community with fellow colleagues. During this one hour session, this open forum will allow for everyone to address our own feelings in processing the results, lean on one another for support, and seek out or provide advice on how to address the needs of our students as we move forward, together.

Penguin Chats hosted by the Division of Public Affairs

  • Wednesdays, Oct. 28 and Nov. 4, 4-5 p.m. Open to students, faculty, and staff via Zoom

In addition to DEI and DAG’s Post-Election Discussions, consider joining the Division of Public Affairs for a recurring meeting, Penguin Chats.
