The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is seeking undergraduate and graduate volunteers with a passion for increasing access to higher education to assist a middle school outreach initiative called College Connections. College Connections provides an engaging information session and brief campus tour, which introduce middle school students to the landscape of higher education. Our goal is to get students excited about college and equip them with tips and resources necessary to prepare for the application process. Volunteers will receive training from the Diversity Initiatives team. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please email Tysha Vulcain-Murrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Human rights” has emerged as a prominent concept for justice among scholars, activists, politicians, aid workers, and NGO officials. It has wide use and powerful reach and yet remains contested and fluid. What opportunities does the invocation of “human rights” enable, and what does it constrain? How do we understand the intellectual genealogy of human rights? Is human rights a terrain of resistance, or is it the new orthodoxy? Does the existence of widespread injustice prove that human-rights-based social change efforts are ineffectual, or does it prove that such efforts need to be expanded and empowered? The Gallatin Human Rights Initiative seeks to catalyze critical reflection and engagement with these and related questions.
The Gallatin Global Fellowship in Human Rights is a year-long program that supports selected NYU students with up to $5,000 in funding to focus on these issues while working with human rights organizations. Fellows pursue extended projects and internships (including research and report writing) for the host organization during the summer. The fellowship aims to allow students to contribute to the host organizations’ work while gaining experience in the human rights field in ways that complement their academic trajectory at NYU.
