BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Darren Treadway, PhD, associate professor of organization and human resources in the University at Buffalo School of Management, has been named a faculty affiliate to UB’s Alberti Center for Bullying Abuse Prevention.

As a faculty affiliate, Treadway will provide insight from his research on bullying, victimization and abusive supervision in the workplace, which has received international recognition.

“Obviously bullying is a reality in schools, but it is equally as prevalent and detrimental in the workplace,” says Treadway. “I look forward to helping the Alberti Center in its mission to reduce bullying abuse throughout the community.”

The Alberti Center was established in 2011 from the generosity of UB alumna Jean M. Alberti, PhD, a Chicago-based clinical and educational psychologist and former local elementary teacher, who in 2010 gave the UB Graduate School of Education the largest gift in its history.

The mission of the center is to 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 UB School of Management is recognized for its emphasis on real-world learning, community and economic impact, and the global perspective of its faculty, students and alumni. The school also has been ranked by Bloomberg Businessweek, the Financial Times, Forbes and U.S. News and World Report for the quality of its programs and the return on investment it provides its graduates.
