Community Engagement on Human Rights
An Engaged University and Center
The Goldstein Center's commitment to community engagement builds on the success of the Shirley and Leonard Goldstein Lecture on Human Rights, a lecture series which has brought distinguished speakers in multiple areas of human rights research and activism to UNO since 1999. The upcoming Goldstein Lecture in April 2018 will be delivered by Dr. Eddie Glaude, William S. Tod Professor of Religion and African American Studies at Princeton University and president of the American Academy of Religion in 2017.
In the 2018-19 academic year, the Center will co-sponsor conferences in European Studies and Women & Gender Studies and will promote community events related to human rights. We work closely with the Barbara Weitz Community Engagement Center at UNO to coordinate and enrich community engagement across the university.
