Choose Civility Guest Speaker


Civility Today will be presented by Daniel Buccino, co-founder of the 1998 Johns Hopkins Civility Initiative and its current director.


The Ruth Enlow Library recently became a Choose Civility Affiliate, joining a number of organizations in the country who are engaged in this movement to value diversity within communities. Buccino will offer simple strategies for how to reclaim civility as a useful strategy in preventing and managing conflict at home and work, and as something that is good for everyone.
