Student Accomplishments

The Human Rights Practice Program fosters collaborations between faculty, students, and community members to address real-world problems around the globe. The program requires students to complete community-engaged activities in almost every course, with many courses emphasizing how to work ethically and responsibly with marginalized communities. Students help produce white papers, webinars, shadow reports, documentaries, and other forms of human rights work. Below are some of the projects that our students completed as part of their coursework, as independent projects, or as capstone projects.
