Collegiality is an elusive and poorly-defined concept—one that is hard to articulate but "We know it when we see it." This chapter examines cases in which the ideal of collegiality is at issue. But because of its vagueness, no one is exactly sure where collegiality fits in to hiring, promotion, and tenure decisions. The notion of collegiality is examined from the perspective of the literature on organizational citizenship behavior (commonly known as OCB). Included in the discussion are the similarities and differences between collegiality and civility. The chapter also examines the socialization process in academia and the possible dampening effect of collegiality on academic freedom.
