Programming funded by the Weissberg Program includes film series, lectures, panel discussions, as well as participation off-campus in actions supporting human rights and social justice.
Student grants are available to connect academic studies with real-world experiences in the field of human rights. These grants defray travel and living expenses required to undertake internships and research over winter and summer breaks and attend professional conferences.
