Cyberbullying in Higher Education: Implications and Solutions
Smith, Gina S.; Minor, Maria A.; Brashen, Henry M.
Journal of Educational Research and Practice, v4 n1 p50-60 2014
Cyberbullying exists in all levels of education, from kindergarten to postsecondary. Few studies have been conducted to examine the impact of cyberbullying in higher education. Minor, Smith, and Brashen (2013) identified the need for colleges and universities to set policies and standards on how to handle faculty being cyberbullying by students. Their study revealed that the majority of respondents were unaware of a policy in existence and/or the proper steps to take when bullying occurs. Six steps have been designed to assist college administrators when creating an antibullying policy and setting standards. [For "Cyberbullying in Higher Education," see EJ1118457.]
