department head from 1997 to 2008. His daughter earned a bachelor's degree at Vanderbilt University and had internships at Eli Lilly and Co.
"I appreciate him more now...because I realize how much effort goes into each lecture and keeping your students engaged," Ghazal
Hariri said of her father.

"Learning is a two-way thing," Hossein
Hariri said. "Students provide great feedback while they're learning and applying the subject matter. Our successful alumni have always been our best testimonials about the high standards that have been a department strength."
