Meet the SOE Dean: Shabnam Koirala-Azad
Dean and Associate Professor of International and Multicultural Education, Shabnam Koirala-Azad discusses creating a common vision toward change.
The MA in International & Multicultural Education (IME) program is dedicated to understanding formal and informal education within its sociocultural, linguistic, and political contexts.
Our program is based on the principles of equity, social justice, and human rights. The curriculum addresses the realities of education within and beyond public schooling in the United States and the world.
Melissa Canlas along with Dr. Monisha Bajaj and Amy Argenal started a weekly human rights club for refugee and immigrant high school students in the bay area. They've since co-authored journal articles and presented their research nationally and internationally.
Our students arrive at USF as educators, filmmakers, community organizers, after-school program directors, and more, eager to explore new ways of reading the world using a human rights framework
