What will a Trump presidency mean for the U.S. and beyond? (Photo, 

ALBANY, N.Y. (Nov. 10, 2016) — The 2016 presidential election is over, but the process of understanding what the results mean has just begun.

What happens after Donald J. Trump moves into the White House? Why were so many blindsided by the election results?

You can find out more and share your thoughts today during an open discussion with faculty and students about the election and its implications for Albany, Washington and beyond. The talk will begin at 4:30 p.m. in room 242 of the Earth Sciences Building on the Uptown Campus.

Sponsored by the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy, the event will include brief remarks from professors, including Victor Asal, Michael Malbin and Julie Novkov of the Department of Political Science, Loretta Pyles of the School of Social Welfare, and R. Karl Rethemeyer, interim dean of Rockefeller College. (Faculty speakers are subject to change).

“This faculty panel is designed to place the Presidential election results in a broader historical context and promote dialogue between faculty and students about what the results mean,”
Rethemeyer said. “It will take years or decades to fully come to grips with what happened Tuesday night; this event will begin the conversation.”

Following the faculty remarks, the floor will be open for questions and an open discussion across all in attendance.
