Interdisciplinary Human Rights Initiative
The Interdisciplinary Human Rights Initiative (IHRI) of the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) at San Diego State University (SDSU) supports and promotes human rights research and education at SDSU, as well as opportunities for engagement with human rights organizations in San Diego County and in the San Diego-Tijuana binational area and beyond.
The Certificate in Human Rights (open to all majors) and the films and speaker series organized by IHRI enrich students’ educational experience and awareness of pressing human rights issues that we face locally, nationally, and globally.
