Honors Program welcomes new director

Dr. Iraj Omidvar

JUNE 10, 2013 – Dr. Iraj Omidvar, an associate professor in the English, Technical Communication and Media Arts (ETCMA) department, has been named the new director of the University Honors Program.

Dr. Omidvar has been involved with the honors program since joining the SPSU faculty in 2006 and for the past two years has served on the Honors Faculty Committee, helping to develop criteria and curriculum and review student applications and student scholarships. He has also presented papers with students and other faculty members in the program at the annual National Collegiate Honors Council Conference.

As director, Dr. Omidvar plans to build upon the legacy of practices established by his predecessor, fellow ETCMA faculty member Dr. Nancy Reichert, who stepped down in May after many years spent in charge of the honors program.
