Dear FAFS students,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to a new year at AUB and FAFS! I know, after getting a well-deserved rest during this summer, that our faculty are looking forward to seeing you on campus and in a face-to-face learning environment. Unlike the past two years, where you still received your quality education online, this year will bring back the added value of human interaction and building social connections among your classmates and with the university student body at large. To our new students, welcome on board! We congratulate you on your decision to join FAFS and are very excited to guide you and support you throughout your journey!
Our hope is that this year will be the beginning of rebuilding our nation and the start of the economic and financial recovery.
FAFS, as some of you may know, has gone through a change of leadership but with a consistent and continued vision and growth plans to ensure the ultimate goals of a healthy earth, healthy food and healthy people. This vision is entrusted in you, the future leaders, with the knowledge acquired in the classrooms, laboratories and the field and enhanced through research and innovations of our faculty and students.
On behalf of myself, FAFS faculty, and staff, I would like to wish you a successful and fulfilling year.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
Ammar Olabi, Interim Dean
