Weissberg Chair in Human Rights

The Weissberg Chair in Human Rights, established in 1999, brings to campus every year a distinguished individual who has made important contributions to understanding and defending human rights on the international stage. Weissberg Chairs contribute new perspectives to the teaching and learning taking place on the Beloit College campus and typically spend from one week to 10 days in residence. Their residencies serve as a catalyst for conversations across campus and throughout the disciplines taught at Beloit College about the importance of preparing students to understand, promote, and defend human rights. The Weissberg Professorship is underwritten and supported by business leader Marvin Weissberg and his daughter, Nina Weissberg'84.
