Abstract

Cyberbullying is an emerging issue in the context of higher education as information and communication technologies increasingly become part of daily life in university. This paper offers a review of the major literature regarding cyberbullying and its implications that impact disadvantaged students in higher education, specifically those who are minority and in lower socio-economic situations. Post-secondary education has been an important pathway to guide students out of poverty by helping them lead successful lives. However, as, in higher education, cyberbullying incidents have increased in educational situations, bully victims are more likely to report feelings of depression that cause an obstacle to their academic achievement in post-secondary education. To prevent cyberbullying on campus, this paper provides cyberbullying rules and polices as solutions.
