Election Guide 2020
Though the 2020 election season is coming to a close, we’ll be discussing the results and their political, economic and cultural consequences for quite some time. So how can we make sure there’s a respectful exchange of ideas? And what resources are available to students looking to navigate a number of difficult and contentious political campaigns?

Inclusion and Equity
At Ursinus, we continually strive to encourage inclusive practices and to foster an environment that affirms the different identities and communities that are represented at the college. While the work of inclusion and equity requires the commitment of everyone on campus, there are specific offices and groups that play a primary role in carrying out this work. What follows is a brief snapshot of these different areas, highlighting the ways in which they serve as resources to the campus community.
The Institute for Inclusion and Equity (IIE) develops resources for students, and works closely with different multicultural student groups to support their programming needs. The IIE also engages faculty and staff in this work through intentional partnerships with academic departments and with different offices on campus.
The Diversity Action Resource Team (DART) guides and helps the campus process challenging events that often lead to division and polarization. DART is committed to helping the campus heal through dialogue and other meaningful action in response to discriminatory acts. DART engages in both pro-active and reactive measures to improve campus resiliency.
The Diversity Committee serves as a clearinghouse for activities related to inclusion and equity and provides opportunities for members of the UC community to share questions and concerns about campus climate.
