WELCOME...The goal of The Civility Institute is to encourage a broad discussion of civility and its complex and powerful role in human relations.

Is INCIVILITY on the rise?

Lack of consideration, workplace rudeness and bullying, classroom impoliteness, self-entitlement, stressed workers, disrepect, violence, social cynicism, unethical practices are all affecting people's motivation,
productivity and health.

It is our hope that the knowledge emanating from our work will add to our understanding of the social psychology of intimate relations, identity and mutual recognition, management of educational, corporate and political eultures, and international relations.

"The most urgent challenge facing contemporary civilizations is the difficult task of reconciling our competitive spirit with our need for communal and global civility. The survival of our civilizations may depend on our finding a workable solution to this dilemma."

...Dr. Benet Davetian
