This study aimed at recognizing the traits of non-collegial university faculty members as perceived by the faculty members at the University of Jarash, to find out if significant differences existed between their views due to sex, specialization, academic rank, age, and experience. Moreover, the study aimed to find out if these traits differ from those of non-collegial faculty members in foreign countries and universities. To collect data, a list consisted of (24) different traits, drawn from American and European related studies, were used. The results showed that the respondents rated nine of these traits as high (m=3.68 – 4.25), and rated fifteen traits as medium (m = 2.42 – 3.65). The finding also revealed that no significant differences existed between the mean of scores due to the study variables. In addition, the results also indicated that the traits of non-collegial university faculty members, as perceived by the faculty member at the University of Jarash, did not differ from those of their counterparts in foreign countries and universities. The researchers recommended that the chairperson should observe non-collegial faculty member, to gather concrete evidences of his/her undesirable behaviors, and to discuss this problem with him/her, in a private meeting. The purpose of this procedure is to find out if this uncivil behavior is caused by the work environment, or it is just the nature of this person to behave this way. If the chairperson fails to change, or at least to modify this unacceptable behavior, he should take the proper and necessary action against him/her in accordance with the rules and regulation of university.
Key words: Collegiality, non-collegial faculty member, Colleagueship.
