Administrative History

The Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Peace Studies was established in 1995 as part of the College of Arts and Science. It addressed issues of the Holocaust, genocide and peace by promoting their examination as both historical events and human experiences, drawing upon insights across many disciplines. It organized public affairs programming, supported research, published a newsletter, made documentaries, conducted conferences, and offered courses of study. By 2006 the program offered a 19-credit minor. The Center's Board of Directors was composed of UNR faculty and community leaders. When reorganization of academic units in 2008 led to the dissolution of the Center, its curriculum was absorbed by the new Gender, Race and Identity Program.
