Our college and university classrooms, online and in-person, have long been spaces for civil discourse and the expressions of emotions, perspectives, hopes and fears.
A presidential election year often introduces additional feelings, including uncertainty, among many students. To support faculty in creating supportive and inclusive learning environments—including facilitating challenging conversations and practicing self care, we’ve curated a selection of resources.
Have a great class!
