Omari featured in CE+HD Profile

Omari.jpgAbdul M. Omari (MPP '08) grew up in south Minneapolis, just ten minutes from the University of Minnesota. Yet the first time he came to campus was for freshman orientation in 2004.

Now, almost a decade later, Omari is deeply connected to the University. He completed his bachelor's degree in global studies in the College of Liberal Arts with a minor in African and African-American studies, then earned a master's of public policy from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Now in the College of Education and Human Development, he is a Ph.D. candidate in comparative and international development education.

Last spring, Omari was elected to the University Board of Regents.

"This is the place where dreams come true," he says. "That's what I tell people all of the time and people laugh, but I mean it."
