The Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention serves a variety of groups with specific needs. Students applying for certification, teachers already in schools, and parents require different services all focused on one goal: bullying prevention. Our services provided aim to equip educators and parents with the knowledge and tools to bring about successful change in schools and at home.  

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) requires that all students applying for certification as of December 31, 2013 have 6 hours of coursework or training on the social patterns of harassment, bullying and discrimination. As mandated by NYSED, this training consists of a 3-hour online portion and a 3-hour face-to-face portion. The University at Buffalo Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention is an approved provider of this training.
