Incitement is defined as the act of "moving to action or urging on."

As individuals researching and working during a period of strident anti-intellectual and anti-scientific sentiment, INCITE strives to stimulate conversation among university community members and the broader public surrounding issues requiring the resources and expertise of citizens, academics and activists. This public series invites individuals who can envision a way forward, can speak to the opportunities both seized and missed in our society, and can guide us toward the most effective and actionable means of addressing the complex social and political issues of our time.
