Scholar at Risk (SAR) Program


This past week, U of L hosted Dr. Sayed Hassan Akhlaq from the Scholar at Risk (SAR) Program. Kent faculty members, Dr. Emma Sterrett-Hong and Dr. Lesley Harris, were a part of the Ad-Hoc Committee to host him, took him on a campus tour, and learned more about his scholarship and journey in the SAR Program. Dr. Akhlaq gave a public talk about being a "Philosopher at Large" and "Academia and Human Rights in Afghanistan.” Along with Dr. Harris on the walk (in these photos) is two Kent doctoral students, Jennifer Ballard-Kang and Mohammed Alkohaiz.
