Bully in the Ivory Tower: How Aggression and Incivility Erode American Higher Education
After surveying over 175 four-year colleges and universities in an independent study, Hollis confirms that workplace bullying occurs at alarming rates in higher education. Further, this study calculates the cost of employee disengagement. Staff who have been bullied either seek to separate from an institution or mentally "check out" as a way of enduring a bully. In the midst of soaring tuition costs, no organization can afford the millions of dollars lost to employee disengagement due to a bully. After gathering data through surveys and several interviews with administrators in higher education, Hollis developed a model for a healthy workplace specifically for higher education, which is also applicable to the general population.

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.
We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century
