This section of the website serves to address the issue of civility on campus, especially in the classroom. (The original document / brochure was developed by a multidisciplinary committee of Temple staff and faculty.) It is intended as a practical step-by-step guide for faculty and staff who deal with issues of incivility on a daily basis. It takes into consideration prevention measures, intervention and emergency response. It is offered with the hope of helping to create a more civil, and thus safer and more satisfying experience for the entire university community.


The Division of Student Affairs gratefully acknowledges the efforts of those members of the Civic Responsibility Committee who developed the original document and the many others, faculty and staff, who reviewed it.
