Student Research


Undergraduate, graduate and law students across the University engage with the Human Rights Center to conduct research and advocacy projects to expand their and the broader UD community's understanding of human rights and related topics. Research opportunities offer students a hands-on learning experience to develop critical thinking and communication skills and allow students to emerge as leaders in the human rights community.
