Alumna Neda Nobari's Donation Makes Iranian Diaspora Studies Possible

Monday, March 06, 2017

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Next fall, SF State will open a Center of Iranian Diaspora Studies to promote information and research on Iranian culture — a project largely made possible with a generous donation from an alumna.

Neda Nobari, an SF State alumna and Iranian-American philanthropist, donated $5 million to the University last summer to create a space for Iranian studies to take place.
