Praise for Facilitating a Collegial Department in Higher Education

"Bob Cipriano has provided a book that addresses department civility? a critical, ongoing problem in higher education. The book is rich in examples, best practices, and strategies for dealing with individuals as well as ways to build collegial departments…. Not only is the book packed with information, the author also has an engaging writing style and wit." ?DANIEL W. WHEELER, higher education consultant; professor emeritus and former head, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
