UI Center for Human Rights prepares to move to a new administrative home in the College of Law, maintaining existing facility
The University of Iowa College of Law  will be the new administrative home for the University of Iowa Center for Human Rights (UICHR), with Adrien Wing, Bessie Dutton Murray Professor of Law, becoming its new director on July 1, 2013. Plans are currently underway for future events and administrative structure.
The center, which faced an uncertain future in recent years because of funding constraints, will move from International Programs in the Office of the Provost to the law school. The center will retain its central campus office as a hub for interdisciplinary programs.
Executive Vice President and Provost P. Barry Butler says the new reporting structure will give the center a strong administrative support system, anchored in a college with a long history of scholarly work in human rights.
