How can we work together to promote better cultural understanding worldwide?

Qais Akbar Omar (GRS’16), a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program, has published a much-praised memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story. He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

Impactx2 Call to Action

With your help, students like Qais gain the skills they need to tell their story and give us a broader understanding of the world.

Full-Time Faculty Reappointments

Reappointment or non-reappointment papers for full-time faculty with notification dates of either June 30, 2013 or August 31, 2013 are due in Faculty Actions no later than Friday, April 26 , 2013. Faculty in this group are typically on the tenure-track or have been at the University for three years or longer. The August reappointment notification date will be phased out over the next number of years, following the shift in the University’s appointment and payroll cycles in 2011.
