UCI School of Humanities | Persian studies bloom at UCI
Thank you, UCI School of Humanities, for highlighting our CEO and President, Anoosheh Oskouian, in this article about Persian studies and culture, and for sharing some of the Persian New Year (known as Nowruz) traditions. Anoosheh is very passionate about staying involved within her community in addition to running Ship & Shore Environmental.
UCI Samuel Center for Persian Studies and Culture is the largest center in the U.S. for the study of Iran, and as described in the article, “Oskouian connects to her Persian roots not only by celebrating the springtime event [of Nowruz (Persian New Year)], but also by ensuring newer generations have a space to learn about their ancestral home.” Anoosheh is honored to be a member of the university’s Chief Executive Roundtable, an alliance of business and university leaders that support the development and well-being of UCI and area businesses. In addition to being active in the School of Humanities, Anoosheh is also part of the advisory board for the School of Physical Sciences, engaging at times as a guest lecturer.
