The devastation of mobbing is not limited to paid employees with established salaries and formal work contracts. Students building their careers and credentials also run the risk of encountering the brutal hysteria of collective attacks. In higher education, graduate students are in a particularly insecure situation with advisors, committees, and supervisors holding the power to help build up, or alternatively suppress, the student’s intellectual growth and research efforts. While workplace mobbing is an expanding field of study, little research has been done specifically focusing on the mobbing of graduate students. The resources in this section come from of a variety of sources and all touch on issues relevant to graduate student abuse and mobbing.
