Marsha Lilien Gladstein Visiting Professor of Human Rights

The Marsha Lilien Gladstein Visiting Professor of Human Rights

The Gladstein Visiting Professor is a distinguished scholar with an international standing in the study of human rights, who participates in a 10 day visit to the Human Rights Institute. During that time, he or she delivers a major public lecture, teaches a seminar in his or her specialty, and consults with the faculty and graduate students of the research programs.

The annual visiting Gladstein Professor is chosen by the multi-disciplinary Gladstein Committee which includes faculty from the humanities, social sciences and law school. The Gladstein Committee is engaged in an ongoing process of assessing how UConn can best contribute to the field of human rights, and it seeks to create academic programs that build upon UConn’s strengths in faculty research and archival resources.
