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

The Office of Research Integrity & Compliance (ORIC) is pleased to offer the “Bullying & Misbehavior in the Research Setting: Does the U of U need a Policy?” panel discussion as part of the Eseries on Tuesday, September 15th from 10:00am to 11:00am via Zoom.

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 University of Utah doing to reduce bulling and address professional misconduct in the research setting. Resources on campus will be identified.
