This project reflects research conducted as part of a course project designed to give students experience in the research process. Course: POL 431 01



Students enrolled in three courses (HRS200, VAH428, POL431) worked on a collaborative multimedia project, inspired by the UD Human Rights Center's program, the Moral Courage Project. Through an open nomination process, the UD campus community put forward names of people who exemplify "moral courage". What is Moral Courage? We describe it as a trait a person exhibits when they act to promote respect and dignity within a community, especially in a way that challenges social norms, even though they could expose themselves to risk or harm in the process and may never be recognized for their actions. Student teams interviewed these individuals and collected visual artifacts to produce concise storytelling pieces showcasing the actions of the ordinary people around us who work to positively contribute to our campus culture.
