Making Caring Common (MCC) is a project of the Harvard Graduate School of Education that helps educators, parents, and communities raise children who are caring, respectful and responsible toward others and their communities.
MCC works with middle and high schools across the country as part of their Caring Schools Initiative (CSI). Schools in the CSI use survey data and research-based strategies to promote safety, caring, and respect, and to develop responses to reduce bullying and students’ behavior-related troubles. This initiative is built on the prior success of MCC’s work with 94 schools and more than 30,000 students.
