Political Polarization in the 2016 Election and Beyond

We know that the U.S. political system and electorate are more polarized now than at any time since the Civil War. This session will highlight the sources and consequences of polarization for the political system and ordinary citizens, and consider how that polarization has played out in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The proposed outside speaker, Marc Hetherington, is the author of several award-winning books on political polarization, including Why Washington Won’t Work (2015) and Authoritarianism and Polarization in America (2009). UK participants will provide further context for the 2016 election, national institutions, and partisan media.

Tech Tips From the Hive

We continue to move forward on our transition to the Office 365 mail system.  Overall, the UK migration is 11% completed, while the college is still just starting out at 3%.  All of the Hive mailboxes were migrated a few weeks ago with only minor disruptions on the morning when the transition was finalized.  We will move on to the rest of A&S soon, migrating only a few departments at a time so that we have time to help address any problems that crop up with access on mobile devices or through Outlook.
