Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education


The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education provides academic support for students, faculty, staff and community.

We create education about the Holocaust and other genocides through material resources and consultation.

We also work to increase awareness and knowledge of multidisciplinary approaches to the study of the Holocaust.

We strive to develop sensitivity to and understanding of anti-Semitism, racism, sexism, hatred, oppression, and other ideological constructs and forms of behavior that lead to human suffering.


"Could the activity of thinking . . . be among the conditions that make men (sic) abstain from evil-doing or even actually 'condition' them against it?"
