The Civility Project

In response to recent incidents of incivility across the UC campuses, the Davis Humanities Institute’s Civility Project ( draws upon our campus’s strengths in research across the disciplines, bringing them to bear upon questions our community must ask itself in order to develop or refine a shared notion of civility, and to foster the conditions necessary to nurture it. Incorporating research from the social sciences, humanities, and arts, this project is designed to engage members of the university community in an examination of how we define and achieve civility on campus.

One of the five fellows, Jessica Meyhew, was co-sponsored by the University Library. Her research focus had her delving deep into primary source materials in Special Collections.

We invite you sign up for this fascinating event. The event is free but space is limited.
