Since 1975, AUB has had an office dedicated to providing consulting and technical assistance to governments, international organizations, foundations, nonprofit associations, businesses, and industry in the region. Established as the AUB Services Corporation, it was known for many years as the Office of Regional External Programs (REP).
In 2020, REP was reorganized. Its Center for Continuing Education is now part of the Office of the Provost. Executive education, capacity building, and specialized consulting is now managed by individual AUB faculties. Consultancy and business development are now the responsibility of a new Office of Business Development, which is part of the Office of Advancement.
We work closely with partners in Lebanon and the region especially in the areas of higher education, public health and healthcare services, and administration, to address some of the enormous challenges that we face. We believe strongly, as President Fadlo R. Khuri stated recently, that it is in these most challenging times that it is especially important that higher education institutions such as AUB “intensify their research collaboration, their partnerships, and their exchange of best practices and expertise.”
