Sportsmen Beware: HSUS Looking to Educate Future Anti’s

On June 18, the HSUS announced that it had received “a license as a higher education degree-granting institution by the District of Columbia Education Licensure Commission.” The Humane Society University is not a typical university with a single central classroom.  Instead, it offers both on-site and Internet based courses including those devoted to advocacy.  The HSUS has even partnered with the Duquesne University’s School of Leadership and Professional Advancement to provide a curriculum leading to both a Bachelor’s degree in “Humane Leadership” and a Master’s in “Community Leadership.”

Most concerning is the advocacy courses being offered.  A potential activist can become a “Certified Advocacy Management Specialist” by completing five courses that focus on research and planning, influencing corporate behavior, message development, becoming a citizen lobbyist, and building a grassroots movement.
