Dr. Diana Ahmad

Dr. Diana Ahmad grew up in the UWM neighborhood and earned her BA and MA in History from UWM. Dr. Ahmad is now the Curator’s Distinguished Teaching Professor of History and Political Science at the Missouri University of Science and Technology and has earned several teaching awards, including the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Education from the state of Missouri.


Dr. Ahmad is a longtime supporter of the History Department at UWM and is sure her parents would be pleased at the creation of the Ahmad Family Scholarship. UWM’s History Department provided Dr. Ahmad a great foundation for her career and her life’s adventures. She can’t thank Drs. Reginald Horsman and David Healy enough.
