University flag lowered for Dr. Harbindar Singh Sanghara

The university flag will be lowered on July 29, 2023, in memory of Dr. Harbindar (Harb) Sanghara, a valued member of the Humanities community who taught in the Department of English and the more-recently created Academic and Technical Writing Program for 34 years. Harb’s work in English and the Academic and Technical Writing Program enabled him to introduce hundreds of students to the joys of literature and teach them how to write with clarity and assurance – gifts Harb intended to serve them in university and beyond.

A respected scholar and leader, Harb earned four degrees and proudly changed academic biases while graciously opening the door for more scholars, teachers and learners across the country and world. A celebration of Harb’s life will take place on July 29, 2023.
