Message from the Director

It gives me great pleasure to become the Director of UICHR.  I have been involved as a board member since the founding of the Center and feel honored to follow in the footsteps of Professors Burns Weston, Ken Cmiel, and Greg Hamot, all extremely effective and dedicated to the Center and the cause of human rights around the world.   All of us on staff  are excited that a way was found to continue the important multidisciplinary work of the Center, while basing it within the College of Law. We are delighted that we will maintain the office in the University Capitol Centr as well as a new one at the College of Law.   We are engaged in strategic planning that will build upon the Center’s heightened capacities in personnel and resources.  We encourage you to contact us with your ideas as we move forward.
