Lewis & Clark professor creates first master’s degree program in war-torn Afghanistan
Every year, Lewis & Clark Professor of Education Zaher Wahab leaves Portland to devote four months of service to the Afghan Ministry of Higher Education. This photo slideshow features images Wahab captured during a recent stay in Afghanistan.
Zaher Wahab (second row on the left), poses with the first cohort of the master’s degree for teacher education faculty at Kabul Education University. One of nineteen public institutions of higher learning in Afghanistan, this university—established as a result of Zaher’s advice—instructs approximately 5,000 students annually to become elementary, middle, and high school teachers.
