Abstract

Every human being is entitled to certain rights and freedom irrespective of their origin, ethnicity, race, color, nationality, citizenship, sex, or religion. These rights are considered universal for humanity. It is vital to inculcate these Human Rights among the students through their education. For delivering this knowledge the teachers themselves are required to have awareness related to human rights. In this study, an attempt has been made to analyze Human Rights awareness among university teachers. For this study, a sample of 40 teachers has been collected. The findings show that most of the teachers are average in human rights awareness. It also shows that there is no significant difference between awareness regarding Human Rights among university teachers in a relation to gender.
