The Pozen Family Center for Human Rights is pleased to announce the commencement of our 20th Anniversary Year.
In 1997 a group of faculty from across the University of Chicago believed that: the theory and practice of human rights would benefit from engagement across disciplines and professional schools; and the study of human rights should be part of a robust liberal arts education. With their shared enthusiasm for the project. the support of the Provost, and a grant from the MacArthur Foundation, the University of Chicago Human Rights Program began. In 2014 the Human Rights Program was renamed the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights to honor the generous gift from Ann and Richard Pozen, AB’69.
