This study validated a human rights sensitivity scale developed in 2002 by Mun Young-Rin et al. Using a local university student sample in the Republic of Korea, it investigated college students’ level of human rights sensitivity and analyzed possible correlates such as gender, year-in-school experience, human rights-related education experience, perceived level of Korean society’s human rights consciousness, identification with the concept of global citizenship, and sense of community. Results from exploratory factor analysis, multitrait–multimethods, and a Rasch measurement model indicate that using the sum of human rights-sensitive individual item mean scores for each individual episode in the survey is more valid than using difference scores obtained by deducting human rights-irrelevant item scores from human rights-sensitive items for each individual episode as suggested by Mun et al. The study found that elements of individual scale scores were distinctively associated with gender, year-in school, experience of human rights education, identification with the concept of global citizenship, perceived level of Korean society’s human rights consciousness, and sense of community. The information obtained can be utilized for developing programs to enhance college students' human rights consciousness and human rights sensitivity. In particular, based on MANCOVA results emphasizing sense of community as a statistically significant covariate of human rights sensitivity, the analysis indicates that enhancing sense of community is crucial for enhancing human rights sensitivity in a multicultural and globalized society.
