Weeks has recently authored two books (In Search of Civility: Confronting Incivility on the College Campus and Doing Civility: Breaking the Cycle of Incivility on Campus) that provide a fresh approach to promoting civility on college campuses. Rather than presenting the topic of civility in the abstract, each book incorporates engaging real-life student vignettes to vividly illustrate the effects of civility and incivility on individuals and the community as a whole.

He has participated in and directed more than 150 seminars and workshops and has addressed many higher education organizations, associations, and legal groups.
