“Western Kentucky University is a very special place,” said Dr. Zabaneh of his appointment:
The people here are its greatest treasure. They practice genuine openness and kindness, and are focused on making others better through their academic and community work. I have been completely impressed by everyone I have had the privilege to meet and work with, including my fellow colleagues in the Educational Leadership doctoral program, the students in the classes I have facilitated, the EALR faculty, and those in the wider WKU community. I have visited many universities in the United States, and WKU stands out as one of the best! My family and I are blessed to be here.
Dr. Zabaneh brings a professional background in economics, business, and higher education. He is currently writing his EdD dissertation on the topic of sustainable human development.
