The U.S. Presidential Election

November 11, 2016

This week has been tumultous and significant in American politics. Mr. Donald Trump won the U.S. Presidential election and defeated Senator Hillary Clinton. The future is uncertain and everyone is reacting differently. It’s important to treat each other with respect and compassion, no matter our differences.

I wanted to post some resources here because knowledge breeds courage:

  • If you had questions, comments, concerns, USC had many events and resources this week to help students navigate the current political landscape. If you missed these events, the resource centers on campus remain active and available for students who are interested. The links are available on this website:
  • If you witness or hear of a USC incident that needs to be reported, please follow the guidelines
  • If you’re interested in understanding more about how voting in the U.S. works,this article explains the electoral college. For example, although Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, Donald Trump got elected because he won the electoral vote.

On an important note, today, November 11, is celebrated nationwide as Veteran’s Day – the day to honor and thank the veterans who have served or do serve the country. Thank you for all you do.
