Dissertator, Urban Education Doctoral Program

bullying targeting college students
Bullying targeting college students:

“As a student in college you are being bullied when someone who is more powerful than you deliberately and repeatedly tries to hurt you by: (1) attacking you verbally, using harmful words or names; (2) attacking you physically; (3) making obscene gestures towards you; or (4) intentionally isolating you or excluding you from a social group.” (Chappell et al., 2004, p. 57)

workplace bullying definition employees targeted
Workplace bullying definition – employees targeted:

“Bullying is defined as repeated and persistent negative acts towards one or more individual(s), which involve a perceived power imbalance and create a hostile work environment(cf. Einarsen, 1996; Hoel & Cooper, 2000; Zapf et al., 1996). Bullying is thus a form of interpersonalaggression or hostile, anti-social behaviour in the workplace.” (Salin, 2003, pp. 1214-1215, italics in original)

Bullying and College Climate
  • In a study of faculty, instructors, and librarians in Canada: stress, negative emotions, exhaustion, turnover (McKay et al. 2008)
  • Student perceptions of faculty incivility associated with student dissatisfaction with a nursing program and some students indicated feelings of anxiety or depression as a result (Marchiondo, Marchiondo, & Lasiter, 2010)
national models
National Models
  • This is a new area
  • We don’t really know much about what is effective yet
  • Example of a campus that is ahead of the curve – Westfield State University in Massachusetts:
    • policy
    • workshops (students and employees)
    • consequences
    • reporting processes
