Welcome to The Mgrublian Center for Human Rights

The Mgrublian Center for Human Rights provides an educational experience that combines classroom and hands-on learning, activism, and research to foster in students a deeper understanding of human rights in their lives, and to prepare interested students for careers and postgraduate work in related professions. The Center hosts leading scholars and human rights activists, sponsors academic travel, internships, student-led task forces, research projects, and supports local and global campaigns, thereby advancing the cause of human rights more broadly while helping students develop the ethical commitments and leadership qualities necessary to identify, prevent, and overcome human rights abuses in today’s world.
