The MSU Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project of the College for Education and Engaged Learning offers teaching resources and educational programs dedicated to eradicating racism and prejudice in order to create a healthier, better educated, 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 Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project is a collaborative endeavor between Montclair State University and the NJ Commission on Holocaust Education.
