Today, Nov. 4, the administration of SPA is offering opportunities for students to engage in important conversation and reflection about the election.”

US history teachers, Aaron Shulow and Jon Peterson, “will host two simultaneous discussions for students who are on and off-campus” said Delgado. Students on-campus should report to Huss, and students off-campus should use this Google Meet link.

In addition to the US history department, US counselors, Emily Barbee and Susanna Short, will be hosting simultaneous open discussions. “The goal is to create a space for reflection and expression as students consider the process and status of the election” said Delgado. Students who are on-campus should report the to upper library classroom, which located near Barbee’s office. Students who are off-campus should use this Google Meet link.

Students who participate in affinity groups should expect an email from the Director of Intercultural life, Naomi  Taylor.

“All meetings will follow the Courageous Conversations protocols,” said Delgado, “opening with a request the students place themselves on the compass and be mindful that other students may be in different places than they are”
