Doctoral candidates will design, implement, and present a transformative human rights leadership project that reflects their professional goals and personal interests. You will begin to develop your leadership portfolio in the first year of the program. As practitioner-scholars, you will continue to build your leadership portfolio with a comprehensive literature review, a case study on your area of exploration and interest, and a multimedia presentation that culminates with a final capstone project in human rights leadership. You will share your progress with your peers during summer residencies, and upon completion of your portfolio, you will defend your final project to your professors and peers.
You will work closely with mentors to prepare and implement your human rights leadership project over the last two semesters of the program.
