Brutality 101: Bullying in Higher Education
University of Missouri at Kansas City - School of Law
Twenty-five years of research has documented the prevalence of bullying in elementary and secondary schools worldwide as well as its devastating effects on both victims and bystanders. Similar research has revealed that adult workplaces suffer from bullying at roughly the same rates and with similar effects on targeted workers or those watching colleagues tormented by workplace bullies. Very little research had been conducted however on bullying on college campuses in the intervening years between secondary school and the workplace. This paper reviews the characteristics, statistics and consequences of bullying in lower school and workplaces and extrapolates important questions to be addressed by researchers and higher education administrators alike.
