Student activist Sayed Ziaoddin "Zia" Nabavi attended the university as an engineering student before being banned from higher education for his anti-government political activities. Along with other banned students, he formed the Council to Defend the Right to Education to defend their rights to continue attending university. Following his participation in "Green Revolution" protests following President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's disputed reelection, Sayed Ziaoddin Nabavi was arrested along with his wife, and he is currently serving a ten-year prison sentence on charges of "creating unease in the public mind".
