Description

GET INSPIRED: International Student Success USEF-Nepal's 'Get Inspired' programs feature students, alumni, or professors of U.S. colleges and universities who provide insight to prospective students. In this program, guest speaker Dr. Shyam Sharma, who is now Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at State University of New York, Stony Brook, studied and then taught English in schools, colleges, and eventually the Central Department of English in Tribhuvan University (where he had received the Nepal Vidya Bhusan Award). Recipient of the Future Leaders Award from the Association of American Colleges and Universities, Dr. Sharma completed his second masters degree and the doctoral degree in Rhetoric and Composition from the University of Louisville in Kentucky, USA. His latest project is a book project that documents how American universities support international graduate students from around the world in their academic transition and success, focusing on the teaching of advanced and discipline-specific skills in writing and communication. In this session, Dr. Sharma will share strategies and stories of success among international students, including his own, in the United States. Dr. Sharma will be joined by Professor Gene Hammond, an American professor with several decades of experience, and Dr. Sharma’s mentor and colleague. Dr. Gene Hammond, who is currently a professor of writing and rhetoric at the State University of New York in Stony Brook, served as a nuclear engineer in the US Navy, and has degrees in English from the University of Notre Dame, Oxford University, and Yale University. He has been Chair of the English Department and has directed the Writing Programs at the University of Maryland and at SUNY Stony Brook. He has conducted writing workshops for judges, business management students, and scientists across the country, as well as teaching abroad. He is the author of a textbook, Thoughtful Writing, co-author of Travels through the English Sentence, and author of this two-book biography on Jonathan Swift.
