Rutgers University, the flagship university in a state known for ruthless mob bosses, petulant reality show stars and cutthroat drivers, is launching a two-year project to get people — at least those on campus — to behave better.
Feminists may insist that life for women has gotten better since the days when raucous female activists marched in the streets for equality and questioned traditional social mores about men, marriage and career. Pollsters say otherwise.
Mr. Forni said research is finding that social intelligence — how to get along with others — is a better indicator of success than the kind of intelligence measured by IQ tests.
He said the Rutgers effort is the most ambitious he's seen to encourage civility on campus.
