Architecture Doctoral Candidate Sharmin Kader receives Outstanding International Woman Student Award

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Architecture doctoral candidate Sharmin Kader received the Outstanding International Woman Student Award at an April 7 event hosted by the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity. She was among 20 women with ties to the University of Kansas honored at 2015 Women’s Recognition Banquet.

The award honors an international woman student who has demonstrated academic achievement and has made a contribution to the campus and community through her involvement.

She served as the founding president of the Bangladesh Student Association at KU, developing community support systems and organizing events in the area. In this role and in her personal life she has served as a mentor and inspiration to many students.

Sharmin is studying the architecture of health and wellness with a focus on gerontology. She received her master's degree from Texas A&M University and her bachelor's degree from Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology. Through her short career, Kader has already earned an international reputation for her academic and professional work.

Most recently she received the International Fellowship by the American Association of University Women and the American Institute of Architects’ Arthur Tuttle Jr. Graduate Fellowship in Health Facility Planning and Design. She also presented at the Capitol Research Summit in 2014. 

“KU has such a rich history of women who lead and make our community and our world a better place,” said Kathy Rose-Mockry, director of the Emily Taylor Center. “It’s a privilege to honor these individuals and add to this growing legacy of involvement and achievement.”
