A number of studies have shown we are at an all-time low when it comes to civility, and when it comes to caring about each other and what others think of our actions. Students care much less for society’s approval of their behavior than they did a few generations ago. If we cannot be civil, our quality of life deteriorates, and society itself begins to unravel and grow weaker. This article presents a discourse about civility and incivility that focuses on the importance of understanding the rationale, value, and purpose of the infusion of civility into the profession. Incivility is described as rude or disruptive behaviors that often result in psychologically or physiologically distressed people, and if left unaddressed, may progress to threatening situations that result in temporary or permanent injury or illness.
