“A melting Pot in the Near East, The American University at Beirut, Syria. Where Forty Nations Have Students.” The New York Times ( April 3, 1932).
On the occasion of its 150th year, a pavilion is constructed to commemorate defining moments in the course of AUB’s history of inclusion. A medley of images and statistical information portrays the diversity within the university’s student body and the constantly amplifying struggle to include all who wish to learn.
The President’s Club at AUB invites you to the opening of “genus: nation gender status”, an exhibition of 150 years of AUB’s unity through diversity, at the AUB Assembly Hall Garden on May 17, 2016, at 6:00pm. The pavilion design is by AUB Alumni: Architecture - Ghaith&Jad (www.ghaithjad.com); Graphic Design - Christian Moussa (www.cesiumatom.com).
