Helping Students Make Sense of the Election

Many colleges and universities have been ramping up programming around the 2020 presidential election. Campus counseling centers are on high alert, offering support groups and drop-in sessions for students to help them deal with anger, frustration, stress, and other emotions.
Teaching and learning centers, as well as centers for civic engagement, also have been working hard to prepare staff and faculty members to talk about the election and its aftermath with their students.
