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 of us 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. Join Dr. Amber Wichowsky, associate professor of political science and director of the Civic Dialogues program and two students to explore research, tips and strategies you can employ for engaging in deliberative and honest exchanges of ideas around important topics.
