Mohammad and Jalal Farzaneh

The establishment of the Farzaneh Family Center for Iranian and Persian Gulf Studies is due to the generous donation of Mohammad and Jalal Farzaneh and the Farzaneh Family Foundation. Mohammad and Jalal Farzaneh received their Bachelor and Master degrees in Architecture from the University of Oklahoma. The Farzaneh brothers are the founders of Oklahoma's largest homebuilding company, Home Creations, and currently serve on the Board of Visitors at the David L. Boren College of International Studies at the University of Oklahoma.
