About BOLDLY AUB: The Campaign to Lead, Innovate, and Serve AUB celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2016. At the culmination of the year-long celebration, AUB President Fadlo R. Khuri announced BOLDLY AUB: The Campaign to Lead, Innovate, and Serve, a $650 million fundraising campaign to ensure that AUB can continue to:
  • LEAD by producing thought leaders and community leaders with the passion and drive to effect significant and meaningful change.
  • INNOVATE by keeping AUB at the forefront of groundbreaking movements and ideas in the MENA region and beyond.
  • SERVE the communities around us, near and far, through outreach, research, and leadership in health care.
The BOLDLY AUB campaign will:
  • Enrich the educational and research experience of students and faculty
  • Serve the healthcare needs of the region
  • Prioritize innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Engage with communities in the region to achieve real impact
  • Secure the University’s long-term sustainability
One of the targets of the BOLDLY AUB campaign is to raise $100 million for current and endowed scholarships. (As of May 15, 2020, the university had already raised $127 million.) The campaign will also secure some of the money that we will need to achieve Vision 2030, President Khuri’s far-reaching and ambitious plan for AUB. His vision is of a university that is defined by its liberal arts ethos in education, excellence in research, compassionate medical care, and an abiding commitment to Lebanon and the Arab world. It is a vision that embraces the values that have made AUB great and ensures that we will be able to continue to lead, innovate, and serve for generations to come.
