We train engineers to identify clear and actionable pathways toward socially- and environmentally-responsive technology solutions to our current and future challenges. UConn Engineering students can earn a Human Rights Minor at the undergraduate level – the only program of its kind in the U.S.A. We are innovating to develop curriculum at other levels that will equip students and professionals working around the world with knowledge and skillsets to engage with human rights issues. Our approach is to teach students the theory, help them assess the practice critically, and learn by doing (see our article “Engineering and Human Rights: Teaching Across the Divide,” for more information).
