About the Center for Human Rights and Social Justice
The Center for Human Rights and Social Justice supports campus initiatives related to human rights and social justice, which play a prominent role in the mission and curriculum of Illinois Wesleyan University.
Present your evolving research about how our understanding of human rights has changed, or how human rights informs our understanding of environmental justice.
Meet with professors and students from around the country to share and critique ideas over a two day period.
If accepted, all expense other than travel to and from Bloomington, Illinois will be paid for.
Human Rights, Environmental Sustainability and Social Justice Internships
Thanks to the generous support of IWU alumni from the class of 1970, the Fund for Human Rights, Environmental Sustainability, and Social Justice, to be administered by the Center for Human Rights and Social Justice, has been established for the purpose of supporting relevant student internships and campus programming in these thematic areas.
Beginning this summer and continuing through the 2016-17 academic year, the Center will offer up to $5,000 in individual stipends to qualified students in the graduating classes of 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 who complete human rights, environmental sustainability, and social justice internships.
