Bullying and Stalking on the College Campus: Shedding Light on Complicated Issues
While bullying and stalking on college campuses are under-researched and under-reported issues, they remain a prevalent problem. For example, one survey of over 1,000 college students reported that 60% had witnessed a student bullying another student, six percent reported being bullied by another student and five percent reported bullying other students1. Additionally, stalking affects one out of every 12 women, and one out of every 45 men2.
On Thursday, November 18, we held a webinar about bullying and stalking on the college campus. After the webinar, attendees had a better understanding of:
- How bullying and stalking are defined
- What are the signs that somebody is being bullied or stalked
- What you can do to address these issues on your campus
Who should attend
This webinar provides crucial information to university and college counselors, faculty and administrators who are interested in getting a better understanding of bullying and stalking and learning what they can do about this issue on their own campus.
For those who were unable to attend, below is a recording of the webinar.
