Over 13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. The new documentary film Bully, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.
Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year, Bully opens a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied kids, revealing a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders. It documents the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy “kids will be kids” clichés, and it captures a growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities and in society as a whole.
Join us for a screening of the film Bully followed by a panel discussion. Refreshments will be served.

At a Jan. 19 meeting in Binghamton, N.Y., members of the School of Education and the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences represented NYIT as a founding partner of the New York State STEM Education Collaborative. This consortium of organizations is dedicated to STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education in K-12 settings and helps to define STEM and its related disciplines in a way that serves as a model for New York state and throughout the nation.
Due to Hurricane Sandy, many K-12 schools are destroyed or without power, placing students in new schools until their home locations are repaired. Many students lost everything, including school supplies. To help them, NYIT's School of Education is sponsoring a School Supplies Drive to collect items for a K-12 public school affected by Sandy. View a list of requested supplies at nyit.edu/sandy.
