‘Careers for Change’ Lecture March 5

March 5th, 2010

The University of Iowa’s Center for Human Rights presents Jane Cranston, a lecturer and clinical instructor in the UI College of Education, who will discuss her trip to Pakistan to visit a girls’ boarding school. The event will take place from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Friday, March 5, in Room S301 of the Lindquist Center. This event is free and open to the public.

Cranston journeyed to Pasrur, Pakistan, in 2009 to visit a school built by First Presbyterian Church in Iowa City. Her role in the support process was to arrange educational sponsorships for impoverished girls to be able to attend the school. Cranston will present a video of her trip and discuss some of the challenges for girls’ education in this region of the world.

“Careers for Change” is a lecture series that brings in activists from varying fields of social justice and human rights work. The lectures are free and open to the public, and both students and community members are encouraged to attend. The UICHR is part of International Programs at the UI. For more information, visit
