College and Bullying

Statistics show that most bullying occurs within middle and high school, but the unfortunate truth is that college bullying also exists. In fact, some studies show that more
than 25% of college students have said that they have witnessed
some form of bullying among college students while on campus. Statistics on cyberbullying are even higher. I think it's important to spend time focusing on college bullying as many people assume bullying is over after k-12 schooling. Also concerning, over 15% of college students say they have been bullied by a teacher or professor. 
By the time students get to college, many people figure they shouldn't have to learn how to 
deal with bullies at school. But as noted above, the sad reality is that bullying doesn't necessarily end at a students' high school graduation.

Instructor on student bullying is more common than you may think and can have long lasting mental health damages. It's necessary to report all bullying to college officials, even if the bullying is a school staff member or administrator.
