The University at Buffalo’s Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention will extend its mission to protect and advocate for children by administering a $500,000 grant to study how teachers and other school staff members can recognize and report sexual abuse.
GSE faculty awarded $175,000 from the New York State (NYS) Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (DDPC) for their collaborative research project, “Multimedia and Peer-to-Peer Prevention Support.”
The four-year grant will admit up to 22 graduate students each year into the HRSA Behavioral Health/Substance Use Disorder Scholars Program, which will provide behavioral health education, stipends to offset living expenses, simulated training, and clinical placements in primary care settings in rural and vulnerable communities.
UBNow sat down with Suzanne Rosenblith, dean of the Graduate School of Education, to learn more about the school’s strategic priorities, particularly its focus on teacher education, evidence-based research and community partnerships.
With students from across the United States and 115 countries across the world in our classes on campus and online, our department is strengthened by the diversity of backgrounds and global perspectives represented.
As a graduate, you will be equipped to find professional employment in public schools; in colleges and universities as members of the faculty or counseling center staff; and in private industry, government agencies, community social services agencies and hospitals.
