New York Office
NEW YORK OFFICE
The University has maintained an administrative office in New York City since its earliest days. Situated on the third floor of a mid-town Manhattan high-rise, AUC’s New York Office constitutes nearly 30 employees and interns who administer the institution’s outreach to U.S.-based constituents, including donors, alumni, partner universities, lawmakers, financial associates, educational and Middle East policy analysts, as well as prospective study-abroad students and their families. The New York Office plays a major role in preparing many American and Canadian students for the cultural, academic and communication challenges associated with studying in Egypt.
In addition to managing issues related to the University’s Board of Trustees, the New York Office is divided into four primary areas of operation:
Development - responsible for cultivating North American donors;
Alumni relations - helps graduates in the United States and Canada stay connected to AUC;
Student affairs - recruits students across North America for a study-abroad experience at AUC;
AUC’s chief investment officer is also based in New York to manage the University’s endowment, in addition to a representative of AUC Press, who facilitates marketing in the United States.
Furthermore, the New York Office coordinates with government relations staff members housed in Washington for greater proximity to stakeholders in the U.S. legislative and policy communities.
