Passion is the difference
Last month while I was traveling between the Beirut and Byblos campuses I struck up a conversation with a fellow passenger in the car with me. He is an LAU faculty member in the communication arts department and we talked about how he was working to engage his students in learning more broadly—in the true liberal arts sense that is the tradition of LAU—rather than focusing specifically on a single subject area such as theater or drama. He was trying to open his student’s minds and keep them excited about learning. He wanted to teach his students how to learn not just what to learn. And he wanted them to keep learning, not just while they were at LAU, but for the rest of their life. I was impressed with his passion for his work and struck by how he was truly making a difference in the lives of his students.
Given the remarkable developments at LAU over the past few years we are fortunate to be part of an institution that fosters and nurtures our ability to make a difference. And each and every day members of the Advancement division, as well as other people from throughout the LAU community, are doing just that. It’s what helps to make LAU such an incredible place to be.
