Student Affiliates

Page Affiliates

 Our affiliates are an interdisciplinary group of students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels who are interested in building an intellectual community around issues of domestic civil and international human rights.  Current affiliates include students in law, sociology, political science, global affairs, history, philosophy, and economics.

Student affiliates have a host of special engagement opportunities with the Klau Center. Among those opportunities are an invitation to participate in a year-long series of student roundtables, in which small groups of affiliates discuss timely civil and human rights topics with in-house and visiting faculty as well as guest speakers.  Affiliates may apply for small grants for research, travel, or conference participation related to civil and human rights.  More broadly, affiliates are welcomed into community life and fellowship at the Klau Center and are asked to be ambassadors promoting civil and human rights within the broader Notre Dame community and within their own disciplines.
