#SATakeSpace: “How Do We Move Forward?”
In the wake of the election results, NASPA created #SATakeSpace – an online space for student affairs professionals to intentionally address and process feelings, experiences, and reactions to the 2016 Presidential Election. The hashtag was utilized by student affairs professionals to share resources as they move forward. Individuals were also invited to participate in #SATakeSpace Dialogue Groups. The dialogue groups allowed for participants to discuss the election in a more intimate setting, with colleagues across the country.
NASPA also hosted our Expert in Residence, Dr. Shaun Harper, for a live briefing – Campus Climate in the Post-Election Era. This interactive dialogue continued the conversation about how student affairs professionals can engage students to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their campus community. Student affairs professionals continue to share insight from this live briefing and resources via #SATakeSpace.
