Human rights advocates from around the world come to campus for a week in the spring. They attend classes; deliver a lecture; and meet with students, faculty, and community organizers. Past advocates have included a Nigerian student activist, human rights advocates from Belfast and Mozambique, a forensic physician from Turkey, a Palestinian child psychiatrist, a youth and human rights organizer from Atlanta, Georgia, and an internationally recognized activist who works with Haitian workers in the Dominican Republic.
For Spring 2015, the Human Rights Program and the International Studies Program are proud to sponsor Japanese-Peruvian artist/activist Jorge Miyagui. To view his artwork, please click here. A full schedule of events for his stay will be posted soon.
