Update: Advancement

LAU goes to Washington

Dear Colleagues,

These are exciting times for LAU’s Advancement division. Everywhere we look, new initiatives are underway—from the $65 million Legacy & the Promise campaign, to the reboot of LAU Magazine, to the launch of Net Community. I am constantly seeing creative new ideas come to light under the guidance of our remarkable Advancement staff on both sides of the ocean.

Recently I had the pleasure of spending a few days in Washington, D.C. with President Jabbra and Graeme Bannerman, LAU’s government relations liaison. We had the opportunity to speak with movers and shakers in the US government, meeting congressional leaders and government officials to tell them about the good work that LAU does.

This is some of the most exciting and fruitful work that I have the opportunity to do. For example, LAU recently secured a $500,000 grant from the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) thanks to the exemplary work of a broad coalition of university officials in Lebanon, New York and Washington.

LAU is currently engaged in a wealth of new initiatives and the Advancement team will continue to communicate these important activities to friends and supporters worldwide. As we do I will continue to be inspired by the women and men who serve to advance the work of our excellent institution.
