With corks popping, the end of 2018 will mark the first birthday of the new Leonard and Shirley Goldstein Center for Human Rights at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The Goldstein Center officially opened on January 1, 2018. This Center housed in the UNO College of Arts and Sciences, was several years in the making. Growing out of a longstanding relationship between the Goldstein family and the Religious Studies department at UNO led by Dr. Paul Williams, faculty from six different University Colleges came together to create a non-partisan, non-sectarian organization that promotes the understanding of human rights issues through community engagement, teaching, research, and creative activity.
