Cyberbullying protection, bullying and school violence, model school intervention programs, and community anti-bullying initiatives are among the issues that will be addressed in Auburn University’s sixth international Anti-Bullying Summit. The Summit, hosted by Auburn University’s Truman Pierce Institute and Office of Professional and Continuing Education, will take place at the Wyndham Peachtree Conference Center in Peachtree City, Georgia, on June 23-24.
Keynote presenters include Dr. Sameer Hinduja, Dr. Rebecca Ang, and Ms. Trish Prabhu. The Summit will offer over 30 breakout sessions.
In addition, NFL Hall of Famer Darrell Green will present a workshop as part of the Strong Youth, Strong Communities initiative sponsored by Centene and Cenpatico. Strong Youth, Strong Community focuses on raising youth’s awareness of the importance of active thinking, sound judgment, and creating and enacting a healthy “living constitution” for success in life.
Hero Awards will be presented to individuals and community groups who have taken proactive measures to eliminate bullying in their schools and communities. A variety of educational resource vendors that focus on bullying prevention products will also be onsite.
The Summit is open to anyone, but registration is required. For more information or to register for the Anti-Bullying Summit, visit www.auburn.edu/antibullying or contact Ben Pierce (firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-844-5100).
