Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Faculty Incivility

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 and—yes—meanness 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

This book for sure is an eye opener.

Good news: Shortly thereafter she resigned her position "to return to research and teaching duties." So, I'm very pleased with this important book.

EVERY Dean and faculty person should read this.

Some journalists like Truss have ascertained that today in American culture, selfishness, disrespect, rudeness, and self-absorption are on the rise and incivility has become a serious societal problem. Since academy represents an image of society, the incivility amongst academicians is dominantly visible. Generally, civility increases amongst individuals as they age but it rarely increase as a result of educational level. Uncivil acts occur among academics more often than one would like to admit. According to the authors, people bully and aggress against others because of their personal insecurities, lack of self-confidence, envy, and inability to cope with challenges of life. A hostile work often is the result of power imbalance that leads to aggression, and workplace incivility. Further, when silent treatment, micromanagement, demotion, being given less responsibility , gossip, public criticism, overloading with work, indulging in self-promotion, harboring rumors, breaking confidentiality, playing favorites, ignoring positive contributions, backstabbing, scapegoting, marginalizing, dismissing others' valid opinions and ideas, backstabbing, consistently interrupting, envy ,and lies persist over a longtime, a bully or mob culture begins to develop and flourish in the academy. In some departments, bystanders are aware of what is going on but usually do nothing to support the target (s) for fear of retaliation. Through careful manipulation, bullies who are usually "charmers" and, "liars" may acquire roles and responsibilities of a leader such as department chair or even dean. The way academy conducts its business, mobbing or group bullying through committee decisions camouflages and insulates the real bully or singular instigator.Read more ›

This has helped to *explain* some of what I have witnessed and been privy to.
This book will help you gain both perspective and assist in somewhat a round-about -way with ideas on how to help yourself and others. This book was so popular with colleagues that after lending it out over time ...it has not returned to me.

Great book that gives cogency and form to the experiences of faculty in the academy. Those who are bullies make sure that the bullied are targeted as 'the problem'. EVERY Dean and faculty person should read this. And of course, those who need it most may not see themselves....but I am thankful for this book. As a bullied victim without admin support, who left a promising career otherwise, I found healing on these pages.

I have had the amazing privilege to be enrolled in 3 of Dr. Twale's courses at the University of Pittsburgh School of Education in the Department of Administrative and Policy Studies. While I pursued my M.Ed in Higher Education Management, this text more than many of the others that were presented genuinely touched on, and explained through descriptive examples, many of the core concepts and issues that both faculty and staff working in higher education must face.
