Incivility occurs in various forms in higher education and negatively affects teaching and learning outcomes. It has not been determined if incivility is more prevalent in one discipline than another. Purpose The purpose of this study was to compare faculty and student perceptions of incivility across disciplines at a large public university. Methods In this descriptive comparative study, a convenience sample of 156 faculty and 421 students completed the Incivility in Higher Education-Revised survey electronically. Results The total sample was 577. Nursing reported the highest level of perceived incivility, with all other disciplines also reporting some level of incivility. Faculty perceived more incivility than students. Conclusions With a national awareness of incivility in nursing education, this study shows that incivility also exists in other disciplines and is a starting point for addressing its impact on higher education.
