An Education and Healing Series installment presented by the Office of Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion, "Beyond Donkeys and Elephants" will serve as a virtual forum for a conversation about the electoral college process, racial equity in the midst of election, self-care and creating space for healthy dialogue.
A panel featuring political science faculty experts, student support staff, and a UNO student will cover how to engage in healthy dialogues, coping with electoral outcomes, and resilience. The panel moderated Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion Cecil Hicks and College of Communication, Fine Arts, and Media Associate Dean Melissa Berke will also help answer questions that may include:
Cutting through the “noise” of politics to understand the election process.
Continuing the dialogue on race and equity regardless of the election’s outcome.
Developing skills to cope with stress and anxiety related to the upcoming election.
