Nassib Nasr brings his twenty years of experience in administration and fundraising to LAU this month when he joins the university as the AVP for Development for the Middle East and Europe

Formerly the International Director of the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) at the American University of Beirut’s Medical Center, Nasr successfully launched and developed CCCL’s strategic growth plan with the organization’s board of directors. During his time at CCCL Nasr was able to steadily increase funding which allowed the hospital to increase its treatment capacity by over 50%. Nasr’s work helped to enable CCCL to grow as one of the best hospitals in the region. 

During his years as an administrator and development professional Nasr has formed one of the largest donor networks in the region, including country heads and business leaders in Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. 

Nasr comes to LAU with ambitious plans and innovative ideas to help the university grow. He says he wants to finalize LAU’s Campaign for Excellence: The Legacy & The Promise, which is nearing its goal of raising $65 million for the university, and initiate an even larger campaign. 

Nasr also hopes to expand the Development Office and increase its support for scholarships, professorships, educational program development, and facilities renovation. With his experience raising funds for the children’s medical center, Nasr may be the key to helping the University Medical Center-Rizk Hospital reach new heights in health care delivery.

Nasr holds a Masters in Public Heath - Hospital Administration and Health Management and a BS in Biology from the American University of Beirut.
