Gonzaga students learn from industry leaders. Designed in collaboration with power experts, our program provides the necessary technical and managerial skills to advance careers in the rapidly-evolving power industry.

The Certificate in Civil and Human Rights program provides an opportunity for students to formally focus their legal education on the study and analysis of civil and human rights and the legal, theoretical, and policy perspectives associated with these rights. It also offers the opportunity for direct action in civil and human rights advocacy work, and development of professional experience in this field.

This program builds on the social justice mission of the Law School and the University, emphasizing civil and human rights as an integral component of a student’s legal education. It promotes the Law School’s vision of “educating the whole person to serve the public good, engaging in a dialogue with all cultures and religious or ethical traditions, and to pursuing justice.” It also promotes Gonzaga University’s mission to “foster a mature commitment to dignity of the human person, social justice, diversity, intercultural competence, global engagement, solidarity with the poor and vulnerable, and care for the planet.”
