Neighborhood Initiative

AUC has a long tradition of civic engagement through a variety of programs. As such, the establishment of a Neighborhood Initiative on both its Tahrir and New Cairo campuses presents an opportunity for AUC to reflect on place-based strategies that combine elements of civic engagement and anchor strategies relevant to the region. The Neighborhood Initiative is focused on how an urban university can play a transformative role in its city by working toward a livable, just and sustainable neighborhood. Read More

Working Towards a Livable, Just and Sustainable Neighborhood

Magda Mostafa

"I see the Neighborhood Initiative as a crucial hinge between AUC and its communities on many levels: on the level of research, pedagogy, outreach, symbiotic support and the creation of informed and civically engaged students."

"The Neighborhood initiative is a key aspect of the University's efforts toward achieving institutional sustainability. It resembles a point of convergence between different branches of the university, allowing for more integration between the university and the city through community driven projects and events."
