A nationwide study found that each generation in America believes that we are becoming increasingly uncivil. “More than nine in 10 of each adult generation – Millennials, Gen Xers, Boomers, and the Silent Generation – believe that civility is a problem... The generations are also in agreement that incivility has reached crisis proportions in America.” (Civility in America 2014). This seminar explores reasons for public incivility and principles for restoring civility in our public and private spheres of influence.
