In response to recent incidents of incivility across the UC campuses, the DHI’s Civility Project draws upon our campus’s strengths in research across the disciplines, bringing them to bear upon questions our community must ask itself in order to develop or refine a shared notion of civility, and to foster the conditions necessary to nurture it. Incorporating research from the social sciences, humanities, and arts, this project is designed to engage members of the university community in an examination of how we define and achieve civility on campus.
