In Search of Civility: Confronting Incivility
on the College Campus, by Kent M. Weeks, explores the
student culture of incivility by weaving scenarios of four
real-life college freshmen students with current research on
civility. The four students—Lindsey, Antonio, Sonam, and
Jacob—confront civility dilemmas ranging from cheating,
plagiarism, and misuse of technology to alcohol, sexual
misconduct, and diversity.
In Search of Civility challenges
students to make the connection between the morals and values
they claim to hold and the practical implications of those
values expressed through acts of civility in every part of their
Colleges can play an important role in
fostering civility among their students in their academic and
social lives. In Search of Civility encourages the entire
campus community to aspire to achieve a more civil environment.
Designed to provoke discussion, the book is
ideal for first-year experience seminars and classes. It is an
excellent resource for faculty and administrators because it
provides a student’s perspective of the civility challenges on
campus as well as useful tools, such as model codes.
