ECHO: Ellie's Community Hub Online
Greetings ERC Students, most of you are unexpectedly settling into a new home base, either at home or in the residence halls. For all students, virtual interactions will replace face-to-face interactions. No matter how you look at it, this is an extraordinary social experiment and ECHO can help to provide you with resources.

Minors Hosted by ERC
Human Rights and Migration Minor
The purpose of the human rights and migration minor is to encourage students to treat human rights and migration as both intellectual and practical questions. Students address critical questions: What sorts of rights do citizens, migrants, and refugees deserve? Where do rights come from—from political communities like the nation-state or from universal understandings of humanity? Who counts as a human deserving of rights? How are human rights different from citizenship rights? This program helps to prepare students for a career in research and teaching, public policy, working in NGOs that advocate for and monitor human rights compliance, immigrant service-providing organizations, government agencies, or law. The unique research and writing opportunities offered by this minor also make it an excellent preparation for graduate school. The Mexican Migration Field Research Program and AIP 197 are options for Track B of the minor.
ERC Special Minor
The ERC Special Minor is intended to allow ERC students with a particular interest in one geographic region to gain a familiarity with a language and academic topics relevant to the region. This minor overlaps with the Regional Specialization general education requirement at ERC.
