2019 Civility Image

March 25-30, 2019

Full Week Events Schedule Below

We are at a time in our country’s history where the immediate remedy to difference has become dispute - conflict for the sake of resolution has never worked and will never work. More than ever before, there is a need to capitalize on civil dialogue to reduce our political, cultural, and religious divisions.

This theme was created to empower each member of the ETSU community to cultivate an inclusive environment that honors the diversity afforded by our institution and surroundings through differences in race, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, perspectives, abilities/disabilities, and more. Together we hope to provide information and raise awareness around a diverse set of identities and ideas while encouraging civil discourse and active engagement as we strive to enable social justice and unity in the spaces that we occupy. Each thoughtful word we speak and action we take we can increase our tolerance for and comfort with viewpoints or ways of life that may be different from our own, and in doing so, remind us that differences are to be valued and celebrated.
