Statement Regarding the Presidential Election

 We have just completed a divisive and painful election cycle, in which hurtful, frightening, intimidating and at times threatening rhetoric have been common place.  Social forces such as homophobia, racism, ethnocentrism, ableism, classism, anti-Semitism, and sexism have been central in this election cycle. While we recognize that this election cycle has impacted individuals from all identities, backgrounds, and political ideologies, we specifically recognize that members of our campus community from traditionally marginalized and/or oppressed identities may be experiencing unique and specific concerns related to the election outcome.  As our campus, community, and country hopefully move forward in healing and coming together, our office reaffirms our commitment to social justice, as we strive to end oppressive and marginalizing systems. We strive to create an environment in which those who have experienced marginalization can feel validated, be heard and seen, and experience safety.  We encourage those of you impacted by this election cycle or historical marginalization and oppression to seek support from the resources of Syracuse University as needed.  We additionally encourage everyone to engage in honest self-reflection to identify ways in which you may (even unconsciously) be contributing to the marginalization of others and work towards behavioral change that leads us to a more inclusive and welcoming community.
