Certificate Administration

The Certificate is awarded by SAS. Each participating school appoints an advisor(s) for the Human Rights Certificate to advise and supervise students seeking to satisfy the requirements of the Certificate. These advisors constitute the executive committee.  Advisors determine whether to approve the completion of the five courses for students in their School, and recommend the awarding of the Certificate.
