Professor Gilliar becomes a U.S. citizen

by Anthea Ayebaze | Sep 28, 2016
Beate Gilliar, a Manchester University professor of English since 1993, became a United States citizen this week. She took her oath with a Syrian faculty member at IPFW, an Iranian computer science major from Purdue and individuals from 15 nations. Celebrating a new flag on her desk, Beate says “In a time where hatred is capitalized against terror in all its outrageous dimensions I so celebrate the gifts of how we are granted to give in teaching and learning.” Amen.
