The program is committed to blending scholarship with activism and, toward that end, sponsors an internship program, partners with the UK's University of Leicester School of Law human rights program (LLM), and organizes summer study delegations to locations abroad where genocide occurred. Collaborating with the university's Human Rights Institute and Holocaust Resource Center, our program commissions visiting scholars, organizes conferences and seminars, and prepares degree candidates for other conferences.
