Celebrating Human Rights

The University of Dayton celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the creation of the Human Rights program on campus and the seventieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and provided an opportunity to look forward towards a new era of human rights at UD. The program included two panels featuring alumni, distinguished speakers, and a reception.
