Alumni Weekend 2015

The College of Education presents "Education of Women in Afghanistan"

Improving higher education in Afghanistan promotes the aspirations of girls and women while increasing opportunities for greater equality in a rapidly changing Afghan society.

Come hear Razia Karim, a graduate student in the College of Education, speak of her personal experiences and perspectives as an Afghan woman.

Karim has returned to Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, to help rebuild Afghan society after spending much of her young life as a refugee in Pakistan. Karim will be joined by professor Joseph B. Berger to share insights gained through the Center for International Education's Higher Education Program in Afghanistan.

Refreshments will be available.

All are welcome.  No cost to attend.
