"Academic Civility Begins in the Classroom" by Roger
G. Baldwin appeared in the 1997-98 series. Scheduled
for the forthcoming 2000-01 series is: John B. Bennett,
Quinnipiac College, "Teaching with Hospitality".
He discusses hospitality (a concept inclusive of
civility) as "practiced more than it is preached.
A cardinal academic virtue, hospitality is essential
in the classroom as well as in relationships with
colleagues. This essay looks at why this is so."
Provost Bennett also has an article entitled "Hospitality
and collegial community: An Essay", forthcoming
in the Journal of Innovative Higher Education, vol.
25/2. See webpage http://www.isd.uga.edu/ihe/ihe.htm

Chair: A Resource for Academic Administrators" has
