Many consider higher education one of the last domains of decorum - an environment for discovery and civility - an ivory tower where sage professors engage eager learners in academic debate, social discourse, and enlightened discussion. But, as in the larger society, incivility on American college campuses is a serious and growing concern. Indeed, Baldwin (39) believes that a universal goal of higher education is to promote civility and respect, and argues that the role of higher education is to create scholars, working professionals, and good citizens.
