“Closer Than We Might Appear: A Conversation on Connection, Communication and Civil Discourse with Steven Petrow"
Come kick off Civility Week in two ways: First, learn about upcoming Civility Week events via previews shared by faculty, staff and students who will present throughout the week. Next, join us for an in-depth discussion on civility with “Civilist”, Steven Petrow, an award-winning journalist who writes and speaks on the theoretical underpinnings of civility, its role in a just society and how civility can be practiced each day. Petrow is author of the "Civil Behavior" column for the New York Times and the "Civilities" column for the Washington Post. His Ted Talk, "3 Ways to Practice Civility“, has received nearly 2M views. Audience participation and friends and family are welcome!
