Minnesota State Hosts ‘Processing Election Emotions’ Seminar for Faculty

The Minnesota State University system hosted a webinar for faculty members that are experiencing anxiety over the upcoming presidential election. According to the event’s description: “Faculty who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) are invited to gather in community on a 90-minute Zoom video call, to discuss issues surrounding the upcoming elections. This BIPOC-focused space is in recognition that the way we negotiate the world — both in and outside the classroom — is fundamentally different from the ways our white counterparts do.”
