This August we welcomed TWO new tenure track faculty members to the AMM department.

Dr. Min’s current scholarly research is focused upon sustainable design practices and innovative technologies in apparel design. Dr. Min has taught a variety of apparel product development courses at the undergraduate level, including patternmaking, draping, digital textile and garment printing, and 3D prototyping technologies.
Dr. Helen Trejo joined us as an Assistant Professor after graduating with a Ph.D. from Cornell University in the spring. She teaches in the area of textiles and research. Her research interests include exploring the economic and technological intersections of fibers, fashion, and agriculture to support a local clothing and textiles economy, and fashion industry sustainability.

SHARIF RAHMAN SCHOLARSHIPS
In memory of our late Chairman and FIE founder Sharif Rahman, the Sharif Rahman Memorial Scholarship program was established in 2003 for FIE students. Sharif was an international educator of the highest integrity whose vision and energy shaped the development of FIE and enriched the field of education abroad.
Students can choose from three application routes:

These various pathways provide students with the opportunity to engage in meaningful cultural immersion and social responsibility projects and activities.
