Human Rights Programming

The Forsythe Family Program on Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs is proud to sponsor a wide range of human rights programming through our new, semi-annual UNL Human Rights Series and through co-sponsorship with a wide range of campus partners.    

UNL Human Rights Series

In Fall 2017, we launched our new, semi-annual UNL Human Rights Series with a public lecture by visiting scholar Olajumoke Yacob-Haliso from Babcock University, Nigeria.  This series is designed to promote human rights research and education on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus and in our larger community through symposia, events and performances, among other activities.  We invite campus partners to propose innovative ideas for programming that highlight the interdisciplinary and cross-cutting nature of human rights and that draw students and faculty from across the university.
