Abstract

Background & Objective: Uncivil behavior strongly disturbs teaching-learning process by creating conflicts and tension in student-teacher relationships. The aim of this study was to study the attitudes of students and faculty members of Golestan University toward uncivil behavior in educational settings.
Methods: In this analytical descriptive study, 50 faculty members and 150 Medical students of Golestan University of Medical Sciences selected by convenience sampling were asked to complete a valid and reliable questionnaire about disruptive and threatening uncivil behavior.
Results: In whole, 2.3% of faculty members had never observed uncivil and 56% of them had never observed threatening behavior in their students during the last year. Among students, 30.2% had never observed uncivil behavior in their teachers during the last year. The relationships between faculty members' perspective and variables of age and work experience were significant (P=0.000).
Conclusion: Although, in this study the frequency and severity of uncivil behavior were not considerable, however, due to the harmful outcome of them, applying strategies to create safe teaching- learning environments is highly necessary.
