Response to Presidential Election, About | Earlham College Skip to Content

November 16, 2016

President David Dawson has joined more than 100 college presidents from the Annapolis Group in signing an open letter to President-Elect Donald Trump.

The letter urges Trump to condemn and work to prevent harassment, hate, and acts of violence — forcefully and unequivocally. The Annapolis Group comprises about 130 leading national independent liberal arts colleges that have similar interests and concerns centering on the values of liberal arts education that inform their missions.

 

In the days following the 2016 presidential election, Earlham College has worked to create spaces for reflection on the election results. The College made a special effort to offer support to those who feel threatened after a particularly divisive election season.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
