Returning Civility to Public Discourse
In this half-day symposium, students, faculty, and the community will have the opportunity to hear from top national, state, and regional speakers on the critical need to restore civility in the public service arena. We simply will not move America, Illinois, or our region in a more positive direction unless we figure out ways to constructively communicate, find common ground, and come up with bipartisan solutions.
