Duet Director Khaleel Shreet Featured in New Hampshire Magazine

Southern New Hampshire University alumnus Khaleel Shreet '15 '22EdD was recently featured in NH Magazine, profiling his journey from Syria to SNHU graduate and director of Duet, a program that provides academic coaching to highly motivated students. 

The article details Shreet’s experience working 16 hours a day and taking online classes after escaping the Syrian civil war and a life-changing conversation with university President Paul LeBlanc that eventually led to his master’s and doctoral degree in educational leadership.  

“That meeting flipped my life upside down,” Shreet told the magazine.  

Shreet now works at Duet, an SNHU program that helps students earn their degrees more quickly and inexpensively, one of several SNHU efforts to make college more accessible to underserved communities, including the Chandler Center, the SNHU Center for New Americans and the Global Education Movement (GEM), which works with refugees around the globe.
