Supporting People
as We Explore

We are proud to support individuals and the work they do to understand and promote civility.  Join us in our effort to support others as they work toward more civil exchanges. If you are looking for someone to help you do research, offer internships, or solve uncivil problems, contact us to see if we can help you make that happen.

Become a Part
of our Community

When we share our insights, ideas, and questions with others, we discover new ways of thinking and living. We welcome individuals and organizations who share our commitment to exploring the ways our identities, ways of thinking, and experiences shape us and the world around us.
