Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project

"The Education Project”


Who We Are

The MSU Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project of the College of Education and Human Services offers resources and programs dedicated to eradicating racism and prejudice in order to create a healthier, better educated, and more just society.

This project brings together MSU’s outstanding faculty, renowned teacher education program, and the cutting edge technology of the ADP Center to offer antiracist teacher training and professional development.

Our goal is to connect the local history, politics, and culture of New Jersey to global human rights education including historical subjects like the Holocaust and contemporary instances of injustice based on race, religion, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity.

The Education Project is a collaborative project of MSU and the NJ Commission on Holocaust Education

MSU Student Internships

The MSU Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project is accepting applications for undergraduate and graduate student internships in human rights education in the fall and spring semesters. This is an unpaid internship that offers up to three credits of independent study. Interns will have the opportunity to help with conference planning, develop anti-racist teaching kits, and research and report on a particular aspect of human rights education. Interns must be enrolled in a degree program at MSU. Applications should include a letter of intent outlining the area of human rights education of interest to the student, an unofficial transcript, and the name and contact information of two professional references.
