NIU is the host of the Roger W. Smith Genocide and Human Rights Summer Institute for Teachers, an intensive four-day institute that works annually with a cohort of up to twenty teachers in a series of workshops and seminars that focus on learning more about the various case studies, how to teach these subjects in the classroom and the role of activism and service learning.  

The focus of the 2010 Summer Institute is on genocide in Southeast Asia and Africa.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Scott Strauss, UW-Madison.
