About the Jane Ellen Bergman Memorial Lecture Series on Women, Children and Human Rights

A wonderful gift by Dr. Barbara Yates, longtime professor at the University of Illinois and friend of the late Ms. Bergman, this lecture series functions both as a lasting tribute to Jane Bergman and as an opportunity for University of San Diego students, faculty and staff, as well as interested members of the community, to hear distinguished lecturers speak about issues concerning women, children and human rights.

 

According to Dr. Yates, Jane Bergman was, “an ordinary citizen who chose to devote her professional life to public service. As a nursing administrator, public health educator and family therapist, she developed an abiding interest in the human rights of common people, especially the plight of women and children in a rapidly changing world.”
