You don’t have to look far to discover evidence of a society at odds. Events over the past few years have sparked uncomfortable or even heated discussions for many with friends, family and loved ones. In this time of strong beliefs and critical outcomes, it is more important than ever to foster skills for communicating effectively and respectfully with one another.
Learn more about how Marquette is doing so through its newly created Civic Dialogues program and how you can practice civil conversation and honest dialogue. Tips and strategies will be shared to help you engage in deliberative and honest exchanges of ideas around important topics.
