Special Post-Election Issue

The election’s over! Whomever you voted for, whatever your beliefs, it’s time to reflect on our American political system, what’s great about it, and what we might work together to improve. In this issue, we offer tips on keeping your students politically involved after the big election, and get an informed take from a renowned professor of political science at the University of New Mexico (also the site of this month’s glorious campus visit). After all the debates and mudslinging, we hope to shed a little light… and have a little fun along the way!
