A special CrossCheck Live event titled Processing the Election will be held tomorrow evening, Thursday, November 10, from 5:00p.m. to 6:30p.m. in Royce Hall.  This event will offer us, as a community, a chance to gather, discuss, and digest yesterday’s Presidential election.  Many of us were shocked by last night’s results.  For some, this shock was accompanied by earnest excitement about our new President-elect.  For others, the results have generated deep anxiety and distress – an understandable response given the rhetoric targeting certain communities throughout the campaign.

As Bruins, as members of a great university, it is our obligation to model how a community comes together in a moment like this to listen, to assess, to move forward.  Together.  Tomorrow’s CrossCheck Live, which attempts to bring together a range of perspectives and voices from across our campus, has been crafted in that spirit. Vice Chancellor Kang will personally moderate what will be a highly interactive and honest discussion, with opportunities for audience engagement.
