America Just Elected A President Who Made This Mass E-Mail Necessary

From: Interim Provost Edward Feser
Date: Nov 10, 2016 7:02 PM
Subject: MASSMAIL - Information on Campus Resources

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

Many campus units and departments have set up post-election discussion sessions that provide an opportunity for all who are interested to gather and talk about the issues related to the election. Some of the sessions have been held, but more are being added. A full list can be found at https://oiir.illinois.edu/post-election-discussion-spaces.

We are aware that some students are reporting incidents of intimidation. We have campus policies in place to ensure the physical safety of everyone in the community. We work with campus and local public safety officials to ensure people may gather safely and express their views.

There are campus resources to address incidences of bias and discrimination.

Violence or threats of violence should be reported to the University of Illinois Police Department at 217-333-1216, http://police.illinois.edu.

Acts of intolerance should be reported to the Office of the Dean of Students at 217-333-0050, tolerance@illinois.edu or http://go.illinois.edu/intolerance (for anonymous reporting), or the Office of Diversity, Equity and Access at 217-333-0885, http://diversity.illinois.edu.

As Chancellor Robert Jones emphasized yesterday, we are a university and a community that is built on the values of inclusivity, mutual respect and the free exchange of ideas.

Our Commitment to Safe and Welcoming Schools

Dear CPS Families,

With emotions running high after the presidential election, we want to affirm our commitment to the values of diversity, tolerance and fairness in our schools. Every one of our students has the right to a safe, welcoming school environment where they feel valued and respected. We are proud of our District's diversity, and believe that every student, regardless of race, ethnicity, background, sexual orientation, language or culture has the right to reach their full potential.

We know that some children are experiencing strong feelings after Tuesday's election, and we are providing our principals, teachers and counselors with resources to help them understand and work through those feelings. If you have any specific concerns about your child's reaction to the election, we urge you to inform your teacher or principal.

This election presents a unique learning opportunity. It is a chance to help students understand democracy and remind them how important it is to respect one another's differences.

We pledge to continue doing all we can to make every child feel valued and welcome so that they can thrive academically, socially and emotionally.

Sincerely,

Forrest Claypool
Chief Executive Officer

Dr. Janice K. Jackson
Chief Education Officer
