This important book addresses the prevalence of faculty incivility, camouflaged aggression, and the rise of an academic bully culture in higher education. The authors show how to recognize a bully culture that may form as a result of institutional norms, organizational structure, academic culture, and systemic changes. Filled with real-life examples, the book offers research-based suggestions for dealing with this disruptive and negative behavior in the academic workplace.
Praise for Faculty Incivility
"This thorough analysis of how governance, reward structures, and campus culture have been altered in recent years demonstrates the need for action among higher education leaders nationally, regionally, and locally."
Adrianna Kezar, associate professor, University of Southern California
"The authors combine their thorough knowledge about incivility and workplace bullying with their deep insights into academic culture and changes taking place in the higher education sector. The result is an important wake-up call not only for policymakers and administrators, but for everybody working in academe."
Denise Salin, researcher, Hanken, Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration
"Important, convincing, and deeply disturbing. Professors Twale and De Luca set forth the ways in which incivility has become systemic in academic culture and trace the history of this negative spiral."
Sally Helgesen, author, The Female Advantage and The Web of Inclusion
"Faculty Incivility is a unique and courageous work by authors willing to 'tell it like it is' and dissect the conflicting agendas, arrogance andyesmeanness that too often characterize their colleagues' behaviors. If this book were assigned reading for academicians, students, and even parents, the college campus might operate in very different ways."
Billie Dziech, author, The Lecherous Professor
