The University of Iowa Center for Human Rights has become a part of the UI College of Law.

The center, currently located in the University Capitol Center, will avoid a once-likely closure because of the partnership and funding from the law school.

When funding for the center became inadequate several years ago, UI officials considered a variety of schools to host the center, with the law school displaying the most interest in late 2012, according to Downing Thomas, the dean of International Programs.

Discussions regarding plans, goals, and programs in the center will continue throughout the summer.

“We’re in a strategic planning process,” said law Professor Adrien Wing, who became the center’s director on Monday.  “We’re setting goals over the summer; we’re in the process of deciding what our plans are.”

Wing hopes to involve more colleges in the center, including all the sciences, she said in February.

Wing was unable to provide additional information about these goals at the time, but she predicts the plans will be solidified by the end of the summer.

“We’re going to build on what the center has been doing,” Wing said.  “We’re looking at a variety of projects.”
