Guide to Events and Post-Election Resources

As the country and our city prepare for Election Day, campus partners are assembling resources for students, faculty, and staff to process the results in what has been a unique election year.

This page provides a calendar and events list for post-election program and support. Physical and emotional well-being is critical during this stressful period. UR Well, the Office of the Chaplaincy, and Counseling and Psychological Services continue to offer well-being services and programs. Additional campus units are preparing support for students as well. We encourage all members of the university become involved in the discussions and dialogue available to our community.

We recognize concerns about acts of hatred and physical safety during the period leading up to the election, and afterward. University officials, campus units, and the University of Richmond Police Department are working to ensure safety on campus, and will continue to actively monitor any developments. To report bias incidents - attempted criminal offense motivated, in whole or part, by the offender's bias - visit the Common Ground website. As always, Student Development continues in their commitment to the well-being of all students.
