The Boston College, with the participation of the Lynch School of Education and Human Development, is offering online, graduate-level education courses this fall for young alums of the Asian University for Women. This online course is for female Afghan students living and working in Afghanistan before the Taliban takeover but now living in Bangladesh. Lynch School Professor Emerita Maria Estela Brisk generated this six-week course with three credits. The professor works with the support of AUW liaison Nishat Akhi, who assists with students’ registrations, gathers the students once a week for the online sessions, and schedules office hours to address any student issues or concerns.
This online course helps 20 Afghan students for free, Teaching the Genres of Writing, and aims to prepare female leaders in education to positively affect the education of young women, exceptionally high school students in Bangladesh and nearby countries.
Dedicated to women’s education and leadership development, Asian University for Women (AUW) supports women who are the first girl in their families to attend college and go on with their undergraduate university education. Last year, the AUW founder, Kamal Ahmad, made an effort to coordinate and establish online graduate courses for AUW students with the help of external educational institutions and universities. He could help to evacuate 350 vulnerable Afghan girls from the country after the collapse of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
