Civil Discourse Program

The mission of LBCC’s Civil Discourse Program is to promote dialogue that enhances understanding among individuals with diverse viewpoints in an open and respectful environment.

Our co-curricular started as a student club and regularly works with national organizations to provide opportunities for civil discourse on campus and in our local communities. In 2019, we were recognized as the nation’s Outstanding Student Group by Heterodox Academy for our contributions to open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement.

This is a great co-curricular for students who are interested in developing valuable communication skills. A limited number of talent grants and independent study opportunities are available.
