Human Rights University for a Day at Montclair High School was held on April 18, 2023.

This is a special annual event curated by Montclair State University’s Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project and serves as the culmination of the Human Rights Education Internship for Spring 2023.

The human rights education interns have spent all semester studying human rights law and policy, conducting in-depth research on a human rights topic of their choice, and learning about human rights education. The students then prepared interactive lessons with the help of experts at the ADP Center for Learning Technologies.
