Mandana Shirandasht


I received a bachelor's degree in Russian from Tehran University in Tehran in 1986 and a master's degree in Organizational Communication from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 1998.

What do you do at UNK?

I am a Lecturer of Communication and teach Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Cross-Cultural Communication, and Interpersonal and Relational Communication.

Why choose the Communication Department at UNK?

The best part of teaching at UNK is the connection to the students and the ability to see them develop into young professionals during their time in our department and at UNK. It is amazing to see them grow as people in a safe and caring environment, and meeting the needs of their personal and professional lives. Additionally, I get to know my students and their hopes and dreams for the present and the future.
