Academic Bullies
Fogg, Piper
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n3 pB10 Sep 2008
Many professors have been traumatized by academic bullies. Unlike bullies at school, the academic bully plays a more subtle game. Bullies may spread rumors to undermine a colleague's credibility or shut their target out of social conversations. The more aggressive of the species cuss out co-workers, even threatening to get physical. There is nothing new about this type of academic bullying. What's new is how it's talked about now, and, thanks to the blogosphere, where and how often. This article describes how the Web provides new outlets for combating workplace aggression. It also describes how different universities address the issue of academic bullying.
