Cyberbullying Expert Sameer Hinduja to Speak to Parents and Students

Dr. Sameer Hinduja will visit The Williston Northampton School on Monday, April 2 and Tuesday, April 3.

Dr. Hinduja, an Associate Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida Atlantic University and Co-Director of the Cyberbulling Research Center, works nationally and internationally with the public and private sectors to reduce online victimization and its consequences.

Dr. Hinduja believes that in order for any information he presents to move forward and take root in a community, the adult constituents must be educated and involved in the process, so he will meet with parents, as well as students during his time on campus.

Dr. Hinduja has authored three books, including the award-winning Bullying Beyond the Schoolyard: Preventing and Responding to Cyberbullying (Sage Publications). Dr. Hinduja received his Ph.D. and M.S. in Criminal Justice from Michigan State University and his B.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida Honors College. At FAU, he has won both Researcher of the Year and Teacher of the Year, the university’s two highest honors.

Dr. Hinduja will speak to parents Monday evening, April 2. Parents are invited to dinner in the Birch Dining Commons, followed by dessert and coffee in the Dodge Room of the Reed Campus Center. The presentation will begin at 6:15 p.m. and conclude at 7:30 p.m. For those unable to attend, Dr. Hinduja’s talk will be webcast at
