Help STOP! Workplace bullying in Higher Education
BULLY IN THE IVORY TOWER is original research with findings that 62% of higher education administrators endure workplace bullying. This is 58% higher than the corporate rate. Workplace bullying in higher education disproportionately affects women, people of color and the LBGT community. Further, this behavior costs higher education billions of dollars in turnover and employee disengagement.
I was very sad to find this out as a 20 year veteran of higher education administration. I grew up playing on a college campus and my family has always been in education. College is supposed to be an enlightened place, not a place where people dread reporting to work.
