Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education

Director: Stephen Gaies

When the ad hoc UNI Holocaust Remembrance and Education Committee (HREC) continued after its successfully planned three-semester catalogue and renamed itself the UNI Holocaust and Genocide Education Committee (HGEC) in January 2009, it adopted the following mission statement:

The UNI Holocaust and Genocide Education Committee aims to increase our knowledge about the Holocaust and other genocides as well as to strengthen our commitment to confront genocide and other threats to human rights, such as intolerance, anti-Semitism, racism and ignorance. We will do this by providing educational programming and resources on campus, in the community, and in partnership with educational and other organizations throughout the State of Iowa, and beyond.
