In this intensive 2-day program we will strive to create a retreat-like seminar* to engage in a dialogue about civility.  After we explore characteristics of civility, we will discuss the costs of incivility, the benefits of civility, the foundations of civility, and strategies to foster civility within our personal and professional lives.  In addition to traditional lectures and presentations, this immersion seminar will include interactive and creative exercises. 

*To facilitate a relaxed atmosphere please wear casual clothing and unplug from laptops, emails and phones.
