Learn anti-bullying strategies and interventions to help promote safe learning spaces in this two-part workshop. Once considered child’s play, behaviors of academic bullying have emerged as hotbeds of conflict and hostility that often isolate, marginalize, and demean the target. While anyone can be a target of bully in academia, research revealed that graduate students are more susceptible because of their academic status. The physical and psychological consequences of academic bullying have the ability to obstruct learning engagement, exclude, discriminate, belittle, undermine professional development, and decrease work performance. This workshop will discuss graduate students’ lived experiences of bullying in the institutional culture. In an effort to move the needle forward, anti-bullying strategies and interventions will be presented to help promote safe learning spaces and social change within the academic structure.
