Responding to Students Regarding the Presidential Election

The outcome of the presidential election has given rise to emotionally charged expressions and actions on several college campuses across the country.  At a meeting involving senior officers of GLCA member colleges last week, a number of presidents and provosts returned early to their campuses in order to be physically present with students and faculty.  In what ways are the presidential election results affecting your own classes and conversations with students?  Have there been emotional expressions among students that have called on you to respond in ways you hadn’t been prepared to do?  What things were learned as a result?  Please share your story by responding to this post.
