A Study of the Perceptions of College Students on Cyberbullying
Molluzzo, John C.; Lawler, James P.
Information Systems Education Journal, v10 n4 p84-109 Aug 2012
Cyberbullying is a concern for all citizens. Harassment and hostility continue to be evident on digital media in society. In this study, the authors evaluate the perceptions of college students on cyberbullying at Pace University. The findings from a research survey disclose a higher level of knowledge of the perceived prevalence of cyberbullying and of the perceived perpetration of cyberbullying towards distinct populations of students. The findings from the study concurrently disclosed a lower level of knowledge of perceptions of institutional pro-action on problems of cyberbullying at the university. This study will benefit administrators, counselors and instructors, and especially information systems instructors, considering an improved process to respond to the sensitivity of students confronting cyberbullying in both society and university.
