Recognizing the Needs of the Other – Are Human Rights Universal?

Dr. Dan Prinzing, executive director of the Idaho Human Rights Education Center, will present a public lecture beginning at 2:30 p.m. and preceeded by a 2 p.m. reception.

Dr. Prinzing has a bachelor's in history secondary education, master's degrees in curriculum and instruction and in history and government, and a Ph.D. in Educational Administration. Prior to the current position, he was the Idaho State Department of Education’s coordinator of civic and international education, the former SDE coordinator of social studies and curricular materials, and a language arts and history teacher in the Boise School District.

Designing and delivering education partnerships and/or projects throughout the world, the Center believes that Idaho students must be provided with the opportunity and expectation to apply civic knowledge, skills and dispositions to work for the common good. The Center’s programming is developed in “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”
