Service has always been integral part of my work at any university. Whenever possible I try to connect the content of my classes to real issues in the local society. My students, for instance, work on projects intended to reveal rhetorical fallacies in speeches by local politicians, or develop proposals and desing materials for educational supplements for the Armenian regional schools. 

In the last two years, I have worked on various research projects with both students and faculty designed to connect the university with the local community. I am also on the board of  AUA‘s AGBU Papazian Library and serve the student community as the advisor to the TEDxAUA club.
