Abstract: 

Background and aim: One of the important roles of education is to train civil workforces who are able to establish a creative relation with others. Learner and the educator’s interaction is a prerequisite factor for learning that facilitates the learning process. This study aimed to investigate the students' incivility from the views of students and faculties in Ardabil University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This cross-sectional and descriptive study was conducted during the second (spring) semester of the academic year of 2016. Through the consensus sampling, the inventory of Incivility in Higher Education (IHE) was sent to all faculty members whom 74 teachers returned.
In addition, through stratified-random sampling, 540 students completed the same and equivalent instrument. For data analysis, descriptive and inferential statistics of independent t-test and (Oneway ANOVA) were used in SPSS (v.24).
Results: The mean and standard deviation of the students and faculty members’ attitude score about students’ incivility behaviors were 2.97±0.35 and 3.05±0.61, respectively.
Accordingly, the mean experience score of students and the faculty members were 2.50±0.35 and 3.08±0.48, respectively. The difference between students’ and faculty members’ attitude regarding students’ uncivil behaviors was statistically significant (p<0.001). In contrast, the difference score between students and teachers’ experience about students’ uncivil behaviors wasn’t statistically significant (p=0.21).
Conclusion: According to the findings of this study, students and faculty members experience a moderate rate of incivility from students. Therefore, interventions are necessary to improve the behaviors of the students through educational courses regarding professionalism, academic behaviors, ethics, communication skills and socialization.
