Cyber Aggression among College Students: Demographic Differences, Predictors of Distress, and the Role of the University
Bauman, Sheri; Baldasare, Angela
Journal of College Student Development, v56 n4 p317-330 May 2015
Using the Cyberbullying Experiences Survey, we collected data from 1,114 undergraduate students at a large public Southwestern university. In addition to inquiring about students' experiences with bullying, we inquired about the level of distress and the digital medium used. Results showed differences in types of experiences and level of distress by demographic groups (members of Greek organizations, LGBT students), and obtained students' perspectives on the role of the university in curbing this behavior. The strongest predictor of the level of distress was the use of Facebook to perpetrate the bullying. Implications of findings are discussed.
