About Bullying and Cyber-bullying

Bullying always involves an imbalance of power between the bully and the target. There is a widespread misconception that bullying is simply physical, but there are many forms of bullying, including sexual harassment, hazing, violence and cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is becoming more prevalent as students have access to social media applications, cellular phones and other technological devices.

Having trouble identifying a behavior that you think might be considered bullying? Think of the acronym AIR to identify a bullying behavior, since bullying is behavior that is:

    Aggressive
    Repeated
    Intimidating

Bullying always involves an imbalance of power between the bully and the target, and this power is used to intimidate and harass students of all ages- including young adults in a college setting.
