Sander Attends Civility Institute Session in D.C.
University President Eugene G. Sander late last month attended the first major event of The National Institute for Civil Discourse, which was created at the UA after the January shootings that left six people dead and injured 13 others, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The institute was formed in the wake of President Barack Obama's visit to the University of Arizona after the Jan. 8 shootings, during which he made a plea for civility. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush quickly signed on as national co-chairmen.
