As a student-centered university, we provide our learning community many opportunities to engage in the world around them. For example, our department publishes Righting Wrongs: A Journal of Human Rights, a peer-reviewed academic journal. Contributors use this space to explore human rights issues, challenge current actions and frameworks, and engage in problem-solving to tackle some of the world’s most pressing problems.
