A nationally recognized research center is supported through this fund.
The Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention focuses on reducing bullying abuse in schools and in the community by contributing knowledge and providing evidence-based tools to effectively change the language, attitudes and behaviors of educators, parents, students and society. The center is a national resource on the prevention of bullying and other forms of school violence among school children.
Our work includes research projects and publications on topics that address understanding, preventing, and intervening with bullying and other types of violence and abuse that impact children, schools, and communities. In addition, the Alberti Center offers a variety of workshops and presentations regarding bullying, cyberbullying, school crisis prevention and intervention, and other related topics.
A generous gift from Graduate School of Education alumna Jean Alberti (PhD '70, Educational Psychology) established the Dr. Jean M. Alberti Center for the Prevention of Bullying Abuse and School Violence (Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention) at the University at Buffalo.
