Dr. Parisa Saboori, Distinguished Lasallian Educator

At the Faculty Recognition Convocation that was held in the Chapel of De La Salle and His Brothers on April 23, 2019, Dr. Parisa Saboori, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, was recognized as the most recent of the Distinguished Lasallian Educators at Manhattan College.


"I am extremely happy," said her colleague and fellow Distinguished Lasallian Educator (2006-2007), Dr. Graham Walker, "to present Dr. Parisa Saboori as the newest Lasallian Scholar because she is a perfect example of a Lasallian educator and is the embodiment of the Twelve Virtues of a Teacher. However, even more than this, every aspect of Parisa’s life is a credit to Manhattan College, her profession, her faith, her family, and herself; and it is not difficult to find examples of her many virtues."
