Human Rights Lab: Equity and Social Justice

The city of Rome has long been a battleground for civil rights, a melting pot of multicultural diversity and revolutionary power struggles. Home to the Vatican as well as Capital of Italy, Rome provides ample opportunities to investigate questions of human culture, equity and social justice.

“While there are other food and culture programs available, Gustolab sets itself apart by offering a unique credit-based curriculum that invites students to experience Italy from an insider’s perspective. Courses and excursions are thoughtfully planned, including trips to family-run organic farms, fisheries and vineyards that represent both the past and the future of Italy’s food culture. This is indeed a rare opportunity — one that many of us wish we could have had ourselves when we were students!”
