Abstract: Cyberbullying is a concern for any college or university. Digital harassment incidents are continuing to be featured frequently in the news. The authors of this study compare the perceptions of faculty and students on cyberbullying at an urban university. From the findings of surveys distributed to faculty and students in all schools of the university, the authors learn of high levels of perceptions on incidents as an issue, but low levels of perceptions on infrastructural and instructional methods of preemption and resolution, at the university. This studywill be beneficial to field researchers, as cyberbullying is considered an issue more often in high schools than in colleges and universities.
