LSU president encourages unity after presidential election
BATON ROUGE - LSU President F. King Alexander is trying to unite the campus ahead of any political divide following the 2016 Presidential Election.
"You are part of the LSU family. Just like in your own family, you likely have ideological, political, and social differences. But you take care of one another, because no matter what, you are family," King wrote in an email to everyone on the LSU campus Monday afternoon.
The email comes amid protests across the country, including Louisiana, over Donald Trump being elected president. King asked the LSU community not to fall victim to divisiveness.
King's email continued: "Now is not the time to turn away from one another. All are welcomed at LSU. It is time to come together, to let our similarities speak louder than our differences. Respect and disagreement aren’t mutually exclusive concepts."
