Education

Dr. Yasmeen Qadri holds the 2010-2011 Patricia Havill Whalen Chair in Social Sciences. Yasmeen and two students will spend a week this academic year traveling throughout Pakistan to visit schools built by author and humanitarian, Greg Mortenson. Since 1994 he has established over 180 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan, providing an education to over 51,000 children, with an emphasis on girls who have very few educational opportunities. The students who travel will maintain detailed journals, develop a portfolio with pictures and reflections about their experiences and gain cross-cultural and inter-faith understanding.
