Karim Seddik, professor and associate dean for graduate studies and research at AUC’s School of Sciences and Engineering, is no stranger to winning awards. His research has been recognized and published time and again by major entities such as the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and the Egyptian state. Despite this, upon hearing that he won AUC’s Faculty Merit Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Endeavors, Seddik felt honored.
“It means a lot,” Seddik said. “AUC is my home and receiving this award makes me feel appreciated.”
Paul Schemm (YAB '92) was recently named foreign deputy regional editor at The Washington Post. Schemm studied abroad at AUC for a year in 1991, an experience that further piqued his interest in the Middle East and left him wanting more. He eventually returned to Cairo years later, where he grew his career as a reporter and editor. Now based in London, Paul recalls his time at AUC and in Cairo with fondness.
