Abstract

This session is designed to engage attendees in a discussion of a service-learning project called “One Goal, One Community: Moving beyond bullying and empowering for life”. This project started out as a partnership between one local high school and one university course on Negotiation and within twelve months it expanded into a large-scale international initiative involving over 35,000 people, 24 schools, and two universities on different sides of the globe. If you are interested in taking a stand against bullying, with your students as agents of positive change, then this is a discussion you will not want to miss.
