The Forsythe Family Program on Human Rights and Humanitarian
Affairs was founded in 1997 and named in 2010 to recognize the significant
educational and financial contribution of David Forsythe, Emeritus Charles J.
Mach Distinguished Professor of Political Science. Forsythe was integral to the
founding of the human rights program at UNL and he served as its director for
many years; his research in the field of human rights helped to establish
Nebraska's international reputation as a center for the study of human rights.
The HRHA is a broadly interdisciplinary program that is
active in both research and teaching, and its core faculty come from the
Colleges of Arts & Sciences, Education and Human Sciences, Journalism, and
The program's current co-directors are Ari Kohen,
Schlesinger Associate Professor of Political Science, and Brian Lepard, Law
Alumni Professor of Law.
The Forsythe fund
helps support the programmatic efforts of the Human Rights and Humanitarian
Affairs Program at UNL and thus benefits students, faculty, and the community.
