Coping with Incivil Classroom Behavior

When it becomes obvious one needs external help in dealing with uncivil classroom behavior, one should follow the procedures outlined in UWS Chapter 17 for Non-Academic Misconduct. This includes conduct that obstructs or seriously impairs or attempts to obstruct or seriously impair university-run or university-authorized activities, or that interferes with or impedes the ability of a member of the university community, or guest, to participate in university-run or university-authorized activities. Examples of the conduct prohibited under this subsection include, but are not limited to: preventing or blocking physical entry to, or exit from, a university building, corridor or room; engaging in shouted interruptions, whistling, or similar means of interfering with a classroom presentation or a university-sponsored speech or program; ... or knowingly disrupting access to university computing resources, or misusing university computing resources.
