Bullying & Misbehavior  in the Research Setting: Does the U of U need a Policy? 

According to recent scholarly work, bullying is defined as physical, social, and/or verbal actions that cause harm to a person or a group.  These repeated actions present negative consequence for the victim(s) as well as the bully.  Bullying, one form of unprofessional behavior, "always involves aggressive behavior" and a differential in power dynamics.  A recent case in Australia highlights the mechanisms through which this type of behavior occurs.  This panel dialogue will address what the U of Utah doing to reduce bulling and address professional misconduct in the research setting, and help identify available campus resources.
