Campus Initiatives

Campuses across the country have developed programs to help students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members develop skills for engaging in civil discourse and dialogue across differences of identity and opinion. Check them out!

Campus Initiatives on Difficult Dialogues, Civil Discourse, and Civility

Many campuses have developed programs designed to increase skills for engaging difficult dialogues with civility, promoting academic freedom and protecting religious, cultural, and political pluralism on college and universities across the U.S. The projects address a wide range of substantive areas, including: fundamentalism and secularism, racial and ethnic relations, the Middle East conflict, religion and the university, sexual orientation, academic freedom, and civility in everyday life.
