Scholars at Risk and Human Rights Collective

The Scholars at Risk and Human Rights Collective initiative at UBC spans across the three core pillars – protection, learning, and advocacy.

Led by Dr. Jenny Peterson, this project aims to develop resources and support faculty across multiple departments to integrate Scholars at Risk and Human Rights research projects into their courses. This project primarily focuses on the learning and advocacy of the Scholars at Risk mandate and complements the protection work carried out under the VP International.
