Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D. comments on bullying in college environments

Brian Van Brunt, Ed.D., Senior Vice President for Professional Program Development at The NCHERM Group, was quoted extensively in Grown-up bullying, the final article in a two-part series examining the culture of bullying at various stages throughout the life span. Van Brunt is quoted as saying, “It can come as a surprise to some when the cruelty, cliques and popularity contests of high school are now propagated into the college classroom and dormitories… Some may also be disappointed that these kinds of behaviors continue in an academic setting where the pursuit of knowledge and the preparation for a future career should be the focus of students’ attention. There can be an anger and resentment from other students, faculty and staff when they are placed in a position of witnessing bullying behavior or are required to stop their own academic pursuits and jobs to deal with a problem they thought most people should have outgrown by this stage of their lives.” Van Brunt is the author of Ending Campus Violence: New Approaches to Prevention, which was published by Routledge in 2012.
