Upstander Academy Registration Now Open

We hope you plan to join us for the Upstander Academy and take advantage of the discounted registration fee before space runs out. 

The Upstander Project and the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut are proud to present an inquiry-based professional development opportunity for secondary teachers using genocide and human rights education to address complex historical and current issues. Middle and high school teachers helped design the Academy to ensure its relevancy. 

Teachers interested in themes such as post-genocide Rwanda and cultural genocide against Native Americans are encouraged to join us. These content areas provide a helpful framework for strengthening social emotional competencies and learning about the importance of upstanders. 

Early Registration Deadline: Monday, February 15th
