Grants to this Grantee
for support of the National Institute of Civil Discourse  
The National Institute of Civil Discourse was founded in 2011 at the University of Arizona, in the wake of the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tucson. The institute integrates research and practice to address the incivility and political dysfunction that prevents federal and state governments from tackling big issues facing the country. It works primarily with three groups: elected officials, the public, and journalists. It has also built a network of social science scholars from eight different disciplines to conduct research related to civility in public and political life.
for support of the National Institute of Civil Discourse program  
The National Institute for Civil Discourse integrates research and practice to help create a Congress and executive branch that work to solve important issues facing our country along with a media that informs and engages citizens and increases public demand for civil discourse. Founded at the University of Arizona in the wake of the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, the Institute is served by former presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton as Honorary Chairmen of its Board of Advisors. This grant would strengthen the capacity of the organization as it emerges from its recent start-up period and enable it to respond to new opportunities as they arise.
