New Faculty Join UCA
UCA’s School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) undergraduate programme is entering its third year since opening in September 2016. This year, students will begin pre-requisite courses for their undergraduate specialisation majors. As the institution continues to grow, new faculty are coming on board.
New faculty and staff of SAS visited UCA’s School of Professional and Continuing Education in Naryn. They learnt about the programmes from Nurbek Nisharapov, SPCE’s Naryn Campus Head, and also visited the Seitaaly Jakypov Park (pictured), which was rehabilitated by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture in 2016.
A faculty orientation programme was held from August 10-15 to introduce new faculty to UCA and the broader Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN). They learnt about UCA’s three schools and research institutes, preparatory and undergraduate programmes, SAS policies, and approach to teaching and learning. Through a series of workshops, faculty also explored topics from work-life balance on the campus to classroom management.
