In Search of Civility: Confronting Incivility on the Campus 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.

Designed to provoke discussion, In Search of Civility uses student stories rather than rigid lists of do's and dont's to illustrate how uncivil conduct can adversely affect individuals and the community.

In Search of Civility provides relevant context that will help students, faculty, and administrators better understand the often far reaching implications of uncivil conduct.

In Search of Civility encourages the entire campus community to aspire to achieve a more civil environment.
