About the Faculty Civility Advocate
Accordingly, the faculty considers workplace incivility unacceptable. It undermines our values, harms colleagues, and impedes the mission and commitments of the University.
ACAF 1.80 policy
The Faculty Civility Advocate is charged with adjudicating complaints of workplace incivility by a faculty member. Any university employee can allege faculty incivility. A complaint filed with the Faculty Civility Advocate starts a formal procedure towards resolution. Individuals are encouraged to first seek informal resolution through their department chair, supervisor, or dean, or to speak to the Ombudsman.
As explained in more detail in the Workplace Incivility Policy, workplace incivility is behavior or a pattern of behaviors that would cause a reasonable person to experience substantial emotional distress and/or interferes with their ability to work.
