Education Director of the National School Climate Center Lectures on Bullying


Richard Cardillo, Education Director of the National School Climate Center, encouraged the audience to take an active stance to address bullying at The College of New Rochelle on October 9, 2012.

His interactive lecture, “Confronting Bullying: Turning Bystanders into Upstanders,” was the second event in a two-part series on bullying.

Mr. Cardillo has over two decades of experience as a classroom teacher, community organizer, and administrator for social emotional learning/character education programs. Today he coordinates all NSCC activities with the Queens School Climate Improvement Program at four New York City elementary and middle schools. He has also recently served on two separate subcommittees of a special task force of the New Jersey State Department of Education to create regulations for the new anti-bullying bill of rights enacted into law this year. Richard Cardillo is the past New York Regional Director of Peace Games and Director of Client Services at God’s Love We Deliver in New York, and on the Board of Directors of the National Council on Academic Service Learning.

This event was presented by the School of Arts & Sciences Departments of Social Work, Sociology, Psychology, Education and the Center for Education Policy and Practice.
