Outreach Speakers Program

Our Middle East Student Ambassador, Saja Abu Hakmeh, was at the Kennedy Elementary School’s International Night Celebration

Invite an International Reach Ambassador to your (in person or digital) classroom

Are you a K-12 educator looking for speakers to give a presentation to your classroom? The Middle East Studies Program has speakers available by request.

Our student ambassadors can present on a variety of topics related to the Middle East, as well as Middle Eastern languages (Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Turkish). We are happy to offer our expertise via the Outreach Speakers Program, virtually or in person (when pandemic restrictions are lifted). We’re happy to work with you on the timing, format, and content of the visit.

To request a student ambassador to your school or community event, please contact us at middleeaststudies@wisc.edu.

You may also contact us with questions you have about teaching topics related to the Middle East, and would like to invite you to explore our Educational Resources page.

If you are a graduate student or faculty at UW-Madison and would like to become an outreach scholar, please contact us.
