The aim of the study was to examine the mobbing via humour of the lecturers at Schools of Physical Education and Sport. The sample of the study consisted of 470 lecturers dutied at those schools. In order to analyze the lecturers' perception levels about mobbing via humour behaviours, the "Scale of Humour Behaviours" was used. T-test and One Way ANOVA were used to determine whether the lecturers' humour styles differ or not according to independent variables. The data showed that the lowest average point was in the group aged 22-32 on average rather than the other age groups in the sub-dimension of Rejecting and Sarcastic Humour Styles (p<0.05). As a result, the relevant lecturers in the low age group were more interested in positive humour styles such as affirmative social humour although they were exposed to rejecting and sarcastic humour styles from time to time. When the lecturers have social humour styles and use these humours in a positive way, they will contribute to run more properly and to make more constructive decisions in favour of students in the process of having terminal behaviours which is a reason for having universities.
