Human rights education lies at the heart of the University of Dayton and the Human Rights Center’s mission. Projects supported by the Center integrate interdisciplinary academic and experiential learning with human rights and rights-based research and advocacy outcomes.
With Counterpart as a partner organization, a series of multifaceted projects and opportunities are undertaken to enable students to gain and apply learning to human rights and development practice, as well as provide valuable research to countries in Counterpart’s program portfolio.
