Featured Resource

Using the lens of human rights and social justice, the Weissberg Program at Beloit College inspires and empowers students to take informed action to address complex global problems. Programming funded by the Weissberg Program includes film series, lectures, panel discussions, as well as participation off-campus in actions supporting human rights and social justice.

Student grants are available to connect academic studies with real-world experiences in the field of human rights. These grants defray travel and living expenses required to undertake internships and research over winter and summer breaks and attend professional conferences.
