“Guidelines for Civil Discourse

Discourse that is civil means that those involved (AACU, 2013)

  • undertake a serious exchange of views;
  • focus on the issues rather than on the individual(s)
  • defend their interpretations using verified information;
  • thoughtfully listen to what others say;
  • seek the sources of disagreements and points of common purpose;
  • embody open-mindedness and a willingness change their minds;
  • assume they will need to compromise and are willing to do so;
  • treat the ideas of others with respect;
  • avoid violence (physical, emotional, and verbal).”
