The Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention will reduce 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 on Rehabilitation Synergy (CRS) provides organizational development (OD) and human resource development (HRD) initiatives, projects and activities for rehabilitation organizations and individual programs across the country. CRS focuses on improving the skills of rehabilitation personnel, advocates and consumers; and providing effective rehabilitation services to individuals with disabilities. Through close partnerships with national, state and local entities, CRS promotes meaningful employment outcomes, consumer choice and control, and increased independence for individuals with significant disabilities.


This project started with the premise that public education is central to solving many national and global challenges and that scientific research should inform educational policy decisions. Rapid social changes induced by a knowledge-based economy, globalization, immigration and technological advances make many of the current school reform efforts outdated and ineffective to meet tomorrow’s societal needs.
The Satsanga Center for Wellness and Positive Psychology is dedicated to research that helps those who struggle with eating, the experience of their body, and, for some, eating disorders. The website is here to share with others some of the work and to encourage all to continue to work toward wellness, connectedness, and the authentic experience of self.
