Series Overview

The Northeastern Reflects Civility Series offers regular opportunities to connect the campus in dialogue around issues related to conflict, civility, respect, and peace. The effort is a collaboration between the College of Social Sciences and Humanities and the Office of Student Affairs. Understanding that by working together we can become pioneers in civic sustainability, the practice of civility engages a diversity of opinions, and in acknowledgment of the wrongs of the past, broadens personal networks, finds common ground in social action and can make the world a better place.
