The UI Center for Human Rights Rex Honey internship program exists to give University of Iowa students the opportunity to be directly involved in human rights-related education on campus, in the Iowa City community, and around the state. Our interns are an integral part of the staff; they plan and promote events, propose new and innovative event ideas, and assist with routine operational projects such as website maintenance.

The program was created in 2011 in memory of Professor Rex Honey. Professor Honey was a co-founder of the UI Center for Human Rights, along with Burns Weston, Dorothy Paul, and Gina Crosheck. Over the years, his work to sustain the Center’s position as a vital university entity was invaluable. He helped to found the newly-launched human rights certificate program that the Center now maintains, and he served on its Faculty Advisory Board. He was intricately involved in many programs that served the university, the state, and the world.

Professor Honey sought to give undergraduates the opportunity to gain knowledge and practical experience in the field of human rights. Following his example, the internship program with the UICHR offers students the opportunity to be directly involved in human rights-related education on campus, in the Iowa City community, and around the state.
