Dr. Ray Wolpow created The Northwest Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Ethnocide Education (NWCHGEE) in September of 1998 to assist educators in the design and implementation of Holocaust, genocide and ethnocide-related studies. NWCHGEE is dedicated to remembering and learning from the past in order to promote the human rights of all people. After Dr. Wolpow’s retirement, NWCHGEE continued to be housed in the Woodring College of Education, administered by the Center for Education, Equity, and Diversity. In 2016, NWCHGEE found its new home in the newly created Ray Wolpow Institute for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Crimes Against Humanity.
