Description

10TH ANNIVERSARY SYMPOSIUM: Celebrating 10 Years of Education for Transformation

Every year since our inception, the Center for Human Rights has hosted a spring celebration designed around the general theme of “celebrating human rights in our communities.” We selected this theme specifically to highlight good news and local leadership, as important counterpoints in a field that is dominated by bad news and in which it is often assumed that the East Coast leads the way. For our tenth-year celebration, we will be lifting up the leadership we have nurtured by involving our students in innovative research partnerships. This is the heart of the UWCHR model.

We will host an all-day conference that brings several of our most illustrious graduates back to campus to share the innovative work they are doing now in careers partially launched by experiences at UWCHR. Each graduate will appear on a panel alongside current students or staff, thus highlighting the ongoing research work and the directions former students have taken beyond our campus. The day’s events will culminate in a reception and evening panel that looks ahead to the next decade in human rights.
