STOP the Bull(ying) in Higher Education Symposium for Faculty

February 24, 2023– 10 am – 2:15 pm- Eastern Time

March 31, 2023—10 am- 2:45 pm- Eastern Time

Workplace bullying in higher education destroys careers, creates health problems, diminishes diversity/inclusion efforts, and erodes organizational trust. Given the breadth of problems that workplace bullying causes for higher education, many faculty are dedicated to stopping this aggressive and unproductive behavior.

 

Lehigh University- the Marcon Institute for Social Justice, Boston University- Center for Character & Social Responsibility, The National Workplace Bullying Coalition, Patricia Berkly LLC,  Academic Parity, and Maryland AAUP  are partnering to tackle some of these problems. We are hosting a symposium for faculty and practitioners to discuss the problem and then develop a position paper that will be widely available.

 

The topics: 1.Faculty career safety 2.Faculty health issues 3.Cost and Legal Ramifications 4. Institutional Diversity

  1. Impact on research

 

Two-day Symposium:  Friday February 24 from 10 am- 2:15 pm and Friday March 31, EST 10 am – 2: 45 pm

Each topic will begin with a 10-minute lead-off discussion by a content expert. Next, we will have an hour and 15-minute discussion. The symposium will be recorded to inform an extensive report of recommendations.

  • State of the problem (1 of 5 topics) & examples – 10 minutes
  • Discussion on the 45 minutes
  • Brainstorm about solutions – 30 minutes
  • All discussions will be records and then transcribed

 

All comments will be recorded for the purpose of transcription and report development. All research experts will be listed in the final report unless otherwise indicated they wish to remain anonymous. Participants’ names will NOT be used.  IRB# 22/11-0190.
