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.
