The term “continuing education” describes the process of learning new skills and acquiring knowledge that complements formal schooling. Most people opt for continued education to further their knowledge base and their employability. The idea of developing the skills of all those who seek to do so has been a cornerstone throughout the history of CEC for more than 25 years. CEC activities and learners transcend the boundaries of Lebanon as our services are offered in countries throughout the Middle East. However it is always our learners that are at the heart of CEC’s success. It is our learners from their diverse professional, personal, and cultural backgrounds that reinforce AUB’s commitment to attracting more regional students from diverse backgrounds through professional programs. CEC upholds AUB’s motto “so that they may have life and have it more abundantly” by extending the resources of the University into the community and region to provide high quality, life-long learning educational opportunities for people of all educational and professional levels.
