" The Zoryan Institute and its division the International Institute for Genocide & Human Rights Studies has taken up the challenge and created a remarkable, innovative, multi-disciplinary course, the Genocide & Human Rights University Program. The seminary provides an intensive learning experience for students from around the world, and as a faculty participant for three summers, it has been an exciting opportunity to engage and debate key issues in genocide and human rights directly with students and other faculty."
