Stop the Increase of Bullying on Campus
The headlines may frighten, but they’re supported by even scarier statistics. Bullying on campus is on the rise — some say it’s hitting epidemic proportions. More and more students are reporting cases of bullying. Videos of on-campus harassment are popping up online and stories of bullying-induced suicide are in the news far too often. University life is a melting pot of diverse people coming together to learn, share ideas, and grow. It can also be a pressure cooker: the work, the need to succeed, tight schedules, and maintaining a social life can create extreme stress. Bullying has made its way to higher learning, and educators are struggling to deal with it.
Apart from our moral and social responsibility, for educators, bullying on campus simply cannot be tolerated. Under Title IX, your responsibility is clear: educators must provide a safe and harassment-free environment that allows students to participate and benefit from your programs. The best way to do that is by instituting bullying prevention programs on your campus.
Why Bullying Prevention Programs are Essential
While some believe they “know it when they see it,” bullying isn’t just the playground knock-downs anymore. Today, bullying is behavior that is meant to hurt either physically or emotionally. The only choice is action: a policy against bullying is not enough – your students, staff, and faculty deserve a campaign against abuse. The first step is knowledge, and Workplace Answers can provide the information you need to prevent this type of abuse on campus with bullying training, which includes bullying prevention and intervention. Online training helps with prevention of bullying by sending a strong message that bullying is unacceptable.
Workplace Answers offers bullying training for students, faculty and staff. Our bullying prevention program features a comprehensive overview of bullying, including coverage of the types of bullies, methods used to bully, causes and effects of bullying and dangers of failing to prevent bullying.
