University for Seniors
  • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The University for Seniors is a new life-long learning initiative at AUB, the first of its kind in Lebanon and the Middle East. It gives older adults (who are 50 and above) the opportunity to share their wisdom and passion, to learn things they have always wanted to learn in a friendly academic environment and to interact socially with other seniors, AUB faculty and students.

    ​​​​​​Today’s seniors want to remain intellectually challenged and socially engaged, actively contributing to their community. Our seniors are accomplished, energetic, sociable, and generous. They have valuable life and professional experiences to share.

    We would love to hear from you if you are 50+ years of age and would like to join the mailing list, suggest a new study group or lecture topic, or even lead a study group or give a lecture.​

    ​We have dedicated this section to thank each and every one of those who are supporting the program by either volunteering their time or making a donation. Their support is helping us expand the program and have its vision and mission reach as many seniors as possible.

    Below you can find a list of our esteemed leaders and lecturers, as well as our donors and committee members.
