Colin Powell to join national civility institute

Retired Gen. Colin Powell is joining the University of Arizona’s national civility institute board.

University officials say the former secretary of state will be part of a board co-chaired by former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

University president Robert Shelton says Powell will help the institute fulfill its mission to promote civility in political discourse.

Powell served 35 years in the Army before being nominated as secretary of state in 2000.

The retired general joins a diverse group on the civility institute board including retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Conner and former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle.
