The Galinson Campus Civility Program

The Galinson Campus Civility Program

Few places reflect our nation’s diversity of race, religion and life experience the way our college campuses do. The rich differences students bring to their lives on campus represent both an opportunity and challenge.

Launched in 2011, the Galinson Campus Civility Program provides communication, inclusivity and diversity training to students and faculty on campuses around the world – equipping them to navigate difficult conversations and find common ground across differences.

The Galinson Project has emerged to balance the principles of free speech and open inquiry with the need to respect differing viewpoints and teach civil discourse in higher education settings.

Developed initially on the campus of California State University San Marcos, the Galinson Campus Civility Program serves students at public and private institutions across the country, empowering them to speak up as bystanders when they see discrimination and communicate more effectively to avoid conflict.

Donors like you have helped take the core tenets at the heart of National Conflict Resolution Center’s work in mediation and make them accessible to students of all backgrounds and beliefs.
