Minnesota State University launches civility campaign



“That gesture will inspire other people to think about ways they can pay that forward,” Hanson said.

Hanson said a campaign like this doesn’t have an end date, and campaign organizers will continuously need to come up with resources for employees and students.

“It would be great if the need for this ended tomorrow, but realistically that’s probably not going to happen,” she said. “We realize this is a multi-year effort.”

Biedermann hopes the whole campus will get involved.

“A workplace where people get along is a more efficient and happy place to work,” she said. “Ultimately, everyone wins when we are civil to each other.”
