Since 1997, the Institute for Civility has been working to promote civility—in government, workplaces, schools, and anywhere people gather to live, learn, work, and play.
In 2023, we updated our name from the Institute for Civility in Government to better reflect the broad scope of our reach.
Our goal is a more civil society.
The Institute for Civility is dedicated to reducing polarization by facilitating dialogue, teaching respect, and building civility in both the public and private spheres.
