The Human Rights Program announces the availability of grants to faculty for the development of new courses (or the substantial redesign of existing courses) to be cross-listed with the Human Rights Program for the 2014-2015 or 2015-2016 academic years. The grants (at $2,500 each) are made possible by the generosity of Richard and Ann Pozen. Grants will be deposited in the faculty member’s research account and may be spent on books or other materials, employment of a research assistant, travel for research or conferences, or other justifiable expenditures in line with University rules.
Courses may be developed for College students, graduate, or professional students. We are interested in generating courses and seminars for College students to support the Human Rights Minor. We are also interested in courses and seminars for graduate students as part of our initiative to develop a Human Rights certificate for doctoral students. We encourage submissions by faculty of all ranks from all departments and the professional schools.
Course proposals, including a short description of the course aims, goals, and content, are due by May 1, 2014.
