Faculty Course Development Grants

Status message

Submissions for this form are closed.

A Human Rights course is not simply a course on any topic related to repression,  marginalization, discrimination, war, or other forms of human suffering. Nor are Human Rights courses only those  courses which include direct references to international human rights treaties and norms. We are looking for courses that  contain some references to rights concepts, discourse, or advocacy.

Courses may be developed for College students, graduate, or professional students. We are especially interested in generating courses and seminars which include College students in order to support those students pursuing 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 you to be creative. For inspiration, we encourage you to look at current and past Human Rights courses.


The Pozen Center will not be awarding course development grants in 2016. Past course development grants have been awarded to faculty from Comparative Literature, History, Human Development, Medicine, Philosophy, Social Services Administration, and Sociology.

Allowable Expenses

Grants may be awarded for up to $2,500. Awarded funds 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.

Questions may be directed to Susan Gzesh, Executive Director.
