Office Of Student Affairs: Updates and Services during COVID-19 Read More ​​​

Welcome to the Office of Student Affairs!


​"University life and the campus environment encourage students to fully explore their potential, acquire new interests and skills, and most importantly to engage with others, whose backgrounds, identities, and thoughts may be different from their own. By doing so students have the ability to enrich their experiences, advance ​​critical thinking, broaden their interests, and gain deeper understandings of the world they live in. The Office of Student Affairs is committed to enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion at AUB and our efforts focus on enhancing campus life and advancing student learning through the design and coordination of co-curricular activities, the development of integrated and complex systems for student support, and the provision of opportunities for holistic learning, self-development, and personal growth. We work on bridging the divide between curricular and co-curricular learning and advancing dialogue between the academic faculties and various learning and support offices at AUB. The collaborative initiatives that we promote aim to strengthen the AUB sense of community and to better advance our commitment to student learning and wellbeing which are core to AUB’s mission and values."​

Strategic planning

​The modern, globalized institution of higher learning of today strives to meet the demands of a young and dynamic population by a) proactively engaging in providing

a) "holistic‟ education i.e. covering "all‐round‟ or "whole person‟ development of students through additional learning platforms outside of the formal academic curricula and research programs in a conscious and deliberate way; and 

b) understanding that the powers endowed by academic achievements are no longer sufficient, nor a sole guarantee that our graduates would be able to function, let alone succeed and contribute effectively to society, local or global. Our students need to be educated, cultured and socially aware and responsible citizens in order to be successful role models for future generations. ​Read More​
