“The Human Rights and Action House strives to help students bring human rights theory to practice. It’s an opportunity to establish yourself more on campus, and a great space to connect with people and more opportunities to connect on different levels. These relationships formed within the learning communities are life-long. The unique cross-discipline approach to the HRALC establishes connections both professional and personal to human rights in various capacities. The programs we do aim to help students see how we all impact each other, and then how the students can impact the community.”
