16 The University 25 The University The American University of Beirut (AUB) is a private, independent, non-sectarian institution of higher learning founded in It functions under a charter from the State of New York and is governed by a private, autonomous Board of Trustees. The University has six faculties: Agricultural and Food Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Architecture, Health Sciences, Medicine (including the Rafic Hariri School of Nursing), and the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business. At present, AUB offers programs leading to Bachelor s, Master s, MD, and PhD degrees. The University became co-educational in The language of instruction is English. Statement of Accreditation Status (SAS) Degrees awarded by the American University of Beirut are officially registered with the Ministry of Higher Education in Lebanon and with the New York State Department of Education in the United States. AUB has been accredited as an institution since 2004 by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, Tel ). The University s accreditation was most recently reaffirmed in June 2009, after the completion of an extensive self-study that was reviewed by educational experts chosen in consultation with Middle States. Over the last several years, a number of AUB faculties, in addition to the Medical Center, have also sought accreditation with more specialized bodies. In September 2006, the Faculty of Health Sciences Graduate Public Health Program became the first such program to be accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) outside of North America. One year later, the Rafic Hariri School of Nursing became the first nursing school beyond American territories to have its nursing programs accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE); it was reaccredited for 10 years in 2012 (see In 2008, the AUB Medical Center received official accreditation from Joint Commission International (JCI), the international arm of the US-based Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). The Medical Center had previously been accredited by JCAHO from 1965 until 1983; however, the outbreak of civil war in Lebanon subsequently prevented periodic site visits by review teams. The Medical Center is also accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a provider of continuing nursing education. ANCC s Magnet Recognition Program B granted AUBMC its prestigious Magnet designation in June 2009, making the Medical Center the first healthcare institution in the Middle East and the third in the world outside of the United States to be recognized in this way. Also in 2009, undergraduate and graduate programs offered by the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business were accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). In July 2010, four undergraduate programs at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture were accredited by ABET, Inc. (the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology) retroactive to October 1, The University or its representatives are members of the American Council on Education (ACE); the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS); the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU); the Association of American International Colleges and Universities (AAICU); the Global Liberal Arts Alliance (GLAA); the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO); the Arab Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (Arab ACRAO); the Association for Institutional Research (AIR); the College Board; the Association of International Educators (NAFSA); Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education (NASPA); Graduate Catalogue

Members of the AUB administration regularly attend meetings and professional development activities organized by these and other international organizations, as well as associations, syndicates, and other formal groupings located in Lebanon and the region. Mission Statement The American University of Beirut (AUB) is an institution of higher learning founded to provide excellence in education, to participate in the advancement of knowledge through research, and to serve the peoples of the Middle East and beyond. Chartered in New York State in 1863, the University bases its educational philosophy, standards, and practices on the American liberal arts model of higher education. The University believes deeply in and encourages freedom of thought and expression and seeks to foster tolerance and respect for diversity and dialogue. Graduates will be individuals committed to creative and critical thinking, life-long learning, personal integrity, civic responsibility, and leadership. History In 1862, American missionaries in Lebanon and Syria, under the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions, asked Dr. Daniel Bliss to withdraw from the evangelical work of the mission in Lebanon to found a college of higher learning that would include medical training. It was felt that this college should have an American educational character, should be administered independently from the mission, and should be maintained by its own funds. Dr. Bliss traveled to the United States in the summer of 1862 to solicit funds for this new enterprise. By August 1864, he had raised $100,000 but, because of inflation during the Civil War, it was decided that he should raise a sterling fund in England to start the operations of the college, leaving the dollar fund to appreciate. After collecting 4,000 in England, Dr. Bliss traveled to Beirut in March On April 24, 1863, while Dr. Bliss was raising money for the new school, the State of New York granted a charter under the name of the Syrian Protestant College. The college opened with its first class of 16 students on December 3, The cornerstone of College Hall, the first building on the present campus in Ras Beirut, was laid December 7, 1871, by the Honorable William E. Dodge, Sr., then Treasurer of the Board of Trustees. At the ceremony, President Daniel Bliss expressed the guiding principle of the college in these words: This college is for all conditions and classes of men without regard to color, nationality, race or religion. A man, white, black or yellow, Christian, Jew, Mohammedan or heathen, may enter and enjoy all the advantages of this institution for three, four or eight years; and go out believing in one God, in many gods, or in no God. But it will be impossible for anyone to continue with us long without knowing what we believe to be the truth and our reasons for that belief. College Hall and the first medical building were completed and put to use in 1873, and the bell in the tower of College Hall pealed for the first time in March However, College Hall was extensively damaged by a savage explosion in the early morning of November 8, 1991, and the building had to be demolished. It was later rebuilt, and the new College Hall was inaugurated in June Since the earliest years, the University has continually expanded and developed new faculties and programs. In 1867, it started the School of Medicine. Four years later, in 1871, both a school of pharmacy and a preparatory school were added. The latter became independent in 1960 and is now known as International College. In 1900, the University established a school of commerce which was later incorporated into the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. In 2000, it regained its independence and was later named the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business.

18 28 The University The University 29 All presidents have lived there during their presidencies, except for Dr. Calvin Plimpton, Dr. Frederic Herter, Dr. Robert Haddad, and Mr. David Dodge. Three presidents died while in office: Dr. Howard Bliss, Dr. Stephen Penrose, and Dr. Malcolm Kerr. Dr. Kerr, the ninth president, was assassinated outside of his College Hall office on January 18, Location and Climate The University is situated in Beirut, Lebanon, at the crossroads of the Middle East. The campus on the Ras Beirut peninsula stretches along the Mediterranean shore and overlooks St. George s Bay toward northern Lebanon and the snow-capped mountains to the east. The campus of around 61 acres has 64 buildings, including faculty and administrative buildings, five libraries, three museums, the Charles W. Hostler Student Center, two men s and five women s dormitories, and the Medical Center. The luxuriant flowers, shrubs, and trees make it one of the most beautiful campuses in the world. Lebanon enjoys a Mediterranean climate and is pleasant and sunny for eight months of the year. The winter rainy season from November to March, however, is at times damp and cold. Although most Beirut buildings are centrally heated, warm clothing is recommended for the winter months. The average annual rainfall of 86 cm (34 inches) comes chiefly in the winter when the temperature may drop below 7 C (50 F). Academic Services Archaeological Museum Founded in 1868, the University Archaeological Museum is the third oldest museum in the Near East. It was established with a donation from General Cesnola, the American Consul in Cyprus, and the collection has since grown steadily. In 2006, the Museum was completely renovated with the construction of an additional mezzanine and an extensive reorganization in a chronological and thematic treatment of its collections. Today the museum exhibits a wide range of artifacts (15,000 objects; 10,000 coins) from Lebanon and neighboring countries. It traces humankind s progress in the Near East from the Early Stone Age to the Islamic period. The collections on display provide educational benefits to students and scholars in Near Eastern archaeology. The museum runs a research program including field excavations and publications of museum collections. Several types of educational activities (e.g., lectures, exhibitions, children s programs, trips) are also organized in collaboration with the Society of the Friends of the Museum, which also runs the Museum Shop. The museum may be enjoyed by the public free of charge. Opening hours are Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm. The museum is closed during official and AUB holidays.
