Two MENA Languages Instructors Make the ASG Honor Roll

November 1, 2022

Two members of the MENA Languages Program faculty were selected to the 2021-2022 Associated Student Government Faculty Honor Roll for their teaching, dedication, and care for students.  We are very proud of them, and pleased with this deserved recognition.  Please see the comments from the ASG: 

Fatima Khan

Fatima Khan received her B.A. in economics from Northwestern University and completed her graduate studies at the University of Michigan with a concentration in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language. In 2019, she received the WCAS Alumni Teaching Award. She is recognized for her excellence in teaching ARABIC 121-1,2,3: Arabic II and ARABIC 125: Media Arabic. A student who nominated her said that Khan had “one of the most dynamic language classes I’ve ever had.” Another student said, “She is adept at engaging with your interests to make the class more enjoyable.” We are honored to present this distinction to Professor Khan. 

 Rana Raddawi

Prof. Raddawi received her Ph.D. in translation studies in Arabic/English/French from Sorbonne University in Paris, France. With over fifteen years of teaching experience in the West and the Middle East, Dr. Raddawi is also a certified interpreter and trains interpreters in medical, legal, and societal fields. She is nominated for her work in supporting the MENA club, ARABIC 111-1,2,3: Arabic I, ARABIC 121-3: Arabic II, and ARABIC 304: Translation in Practice. Many students noted how personalized the classes were, one student noting how an “entire course was based on student interest and used engaging modes of learning to teach all the material. She worked with students independently to achieve their language goals.” We are honored to present this distinction to Dr. Raddawi.
