U.S. News Recognizes Human Rights/Human Wrongs Class

Susan Dicklitch

U.S. News & World Report released a list of “10 College Classes That Impact the Outside World” on April 18. One of the courses selected was Human Rights/Human Wrongs, which is taught at F&M by Susan Dicklitch, associate professor of government and director of the Ware Institute for Civic Engagement.

The article explains that these courses are ones that “allow undergraduate students to make a significant impact beyond the confines of their colleges, while honing skills that may one day be applicable to their careers.”

U.S. News describes the F&M course taught by Dicklitch, a political asylum expert, as: “Students work in pairs to help individuals seek political asylum in the U.S. After interviewing potential candidates for asylum, students work with an immigration lawyer to find evidence and ready documents integral to the case. Not interested in law school? No matter, as the class is available to any senior at the school.”
