Civility

Five University of Nebraska―Lincoln students announced the creation of “The Civility Effect,” a communication campaign aimed at promoting civility, a topic that 93% of the public believes to be a major problem, according to a recent report from global PR firm Weber Shandwick.

Emerson Belitz is the Project Manager for the Bateman team, and Amanda Barker is the Deputy Executive Director + Director of Civic Health at Civic Nebraska.  They spent some time with Mike Hogan on “Live & Local” to discuss the project and the hoped for results in this two-part interview.

If you would like more information on the project, please go to the website  thecivilityeffect.org.
