About Us

People are frustrated, worried, and angry with their leaders and ashamed of how our political process works these days. Heated rhetoric and a dramatic shift away from bipartisan collaboration pervade national politics, leaving us unable to solve the major challenges confronting our nation.

The National Institute for Civil Discourse integrates research, practice and policy to support and engage: 

  • Elected officials who are capable of working to solve the big issues facing our country.
  • A public that demands civil discourse as well as government that works in the best interests of the country as a whole. 
  • A media that informs citizens in a fair and responsible way.
