The University of Minnesota Human Rights Program: A Year in Review
The Human Rights Program at the University of Minnesota, know as The Human Rights University, has been extremely busy throughout 2018. The program graduated its first ever cohort of Master of Human Rights students, many of whom have gone on to positions where they are putting their human rights knowledge and skills into practical action. The Human Rights Initiative awarded grants to groundbreaking faculty research projects that employ interdisciplinary methods to tackle some of the most pressing human rights issues. Our undergraduate, graduate, and professional human rights students undertook a wide variety of research projects and internships that helped develop them as the future's human rights defenders.
