Human Rights Education


The Rapoport Center reaches out beyond the UT campus to educate the community on human rights. Currently, our principle human rights education initiative is the Living Newspaper Project.

Living Newspaper Project

The Living Newspaper Project, which began as a collaboration of the Rapoport Center, the Humanities Institute, the Performance as Public Practice Program of UT's Department of Theatre and Dance, and Theatre Action Project, is an innovative program to reinvigorate civic education in Austin-area high schools through the dramatization of current human rights issues.
