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 freshman 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 lives.
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.
