In the wake of Tuesday’s election results, several groups on campus have organized events for community members to gather, discuss and reflect. Dartmouth staff, faculty and administrators have also responded by offering additional services.

The Office of Student Life and the Collis Center are co-sponsoring a lunch and community gathering today in Collis Commonground from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. today.

The Undergraduate Dean’s Office expanded its staffing during its drop-in hours yesterday. Students were encouraged to use undergraduate deans as a general campus resource.

The Dartmouth Center for Service and the Tucker Center hosted a pizza dinner and informal discussion yesterday evening.

House communities are open to students for reflection. Yesterday, School and Allen House residents had a de-stress session, where they learned mindfulness techniques held in House Center B. In addition, School House professor Craig Sutton held a discussion on “The Day After: Evaluating the Election” at his home on 7 School Street. The discussion was co-sponsored by the Tucker Center.
