  2. On April 3, 2014, Susan M. Swearer, professor of school psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and co-director of the Bullying Research Network (brnet.unl.edu) and director of the Empowerment Initiative (http:..empowerment.unl.edu), delivered the annual Ronda C. Talley Distinguished Lecture. The title of her talk was "Creating a Kinder World: Empowering Youth to End Bullying."

    Swearer delivered a multi-media presentation regarding her research on bullying prevention and intervention and the Born Brave Experiences study. She presented preliminary data from the Born Brave Bus Tour (BBBT), a signature project of Lady Gaga's foundation (bornthiswayfoundation.org). The Born Brave Bus Tour is a youth empowerment experience designed to give youth the inspiration and the tools to create kinder and braver schools, homes, and communities. The BBBT went to 18 cities in 2013 and reached more than 20,000 participants. Goals of the BBBT were to create an accepting space where youth could experience the three pillars of the Born This Way Foundation: safety, skills, and opportunities and to empower youth to practice more kindness and be more brave.

    Susan Swearer is the principal investigator on the "Target Bullying Intervention" and has a long-standing track record working with schools nationwide to reduce bullying behaviors. She received her B.A. in psychology form Swarthmore College, her M.S. in special education from Penn State University, and her Ph.D. in school psychology from the University of Texas.
