Academic Civility

podcast here

In Fall 2007, the Student Conflict Resolution Center conducted a survey of all UMN-TC graduate students regarding the prevalence, manifestations, and effects of academic civility. The survey also explored barriers to seeking assistance and satisfaction with interventions when the behavior was reported.

In an effort to garner diverse University perspectives and share both the responsibility and opportunity for responding to the problem, the Work Group Promoting Academic Civility was formed. The Work Group envisions a University culture that fosters academic excellence by promoting civil and respectful relationships through effective prevention of and response to hostile, offensive or intimidating behavior. Members include:

  • Carolyn Chalmers, Emeritus
  • Caitlin Cohn PhD student, Design, Housing, and Apparel
