In Spring 2019, Scholars at Risk held its third annual Student Advocacy Days at New York University’s Washington, D.C. campus, bringing together over 40 students and faculty from Carleton University (Canada), Illinois Wesleyan University, Mansfield University, Roger Williams University, Sarah Lawrence College, The University of Iowa, University of British Columbia (Canada), and Wheaton College. Students and faculty participating in SAR’s Student Advocacy Seminars, faculty-led courses on human rights and academic freedom, convened in the capital for the two-day event featuring hands-on workshops on human rights best practices, followed by a day of advocacy on behalf of wrongfully imprisoned scholars.
