A nonpartisan, nonsectarian organization that promotes the understanding of human rights issues through teaching, research, creative activity, and community engagement.

The Leonard and Shirley Goldstein Center for Human Rights was established in January 2018 in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  The Center is faculty governed, student centered, and community engaged.  It is composed of over thirty affiliated faculty from five Colleges at UNO.   

The Goldstein Center for Human Rights is the product of a decades long partnership between the Goldstein family and the Religious Studies program at UNO.
