American University of Beirut

 The Emergency Appeal

​​​​These are truly unprecedented times for the American University of Beirut (AUB). The collapse of the Lebanese economy and the global recession triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic have profoundly affected all aspects of our university. A loss in revenue of the magnitude that AUB has experienced in recent months would mean the end of most organizations, but AUB is not most organizations. As President Fadlo R. Khuri said in a message to the AUB community on May​ 5, 2020, “Saving AUB must be our only priority. And save it we will.”

We are launching an appeal for an AUB Emergency Fund. Proceeds from this fund will be used to support the most vulnerable members of our AUB community of students, staff, faculty, and patients, and help assure the survival of the university and its medical center.​
