BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Darren Treadway, PhD, associate professor of organization and human resources in the University at Buffalo School of Management, has been named a founding fellow to the U.S. Academy on Workplace Bullying, Mobbing and Abuse.

The academy is a joint initiative between the Workplace Bullying Institute and the New Workplace Institute. It supports and promotes the multidisciplinary work of leading and emerging educators, researchers, practitioners, writers and advocates who are dedicated to understanding, preventing, stopping and responding to workplace bullying and related forms of interpersonal mistreatment.

“Studies have shown that many as half of all employees in the U.S. have witnessed bullying at work and 25 percent have been the target of bullying,” says Treadway. “I look forward to bringing my research on bullying, victimization and abusive supervision to the academy to help find solutions for these critical issues in the American workplace.”

Treadway was named faculty affiliate to UB’s Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention in 2013. His research on bullying in the workplace has received international media recognition.
