Welcome to Fall 2023
September 3, 2023
Dear AUC Community,
For those of you who are returning, welcome back to campus and to the start of a new academic year. As you see newcomers navigating their way this week, please extend to them the warmth and hospitality that are the hallmarks of Egyptian culture and the AUC spirit of care.
This fall, we are joined by a number of outstanding new faculty members with expertise in a range of disciplines, across the four academic schools. Among our incoming first-year students is the very first group of Excellence Scholarship Program recipients — top students selected based on merit and need.
We have an active and exciting year ahead of us with many new initiatives, including international partnerships, global events and campus development projects that will see us advance on strategic priorities and strengthen the student experience at AUC. I am eager to share these plans and hear your ideas in the coming weeks, once everyone has had the chance to settle into the new semester.
For now, our attention is focused on ensuring a smooth start to the academic year and an outstanding educational experience for new and returning students. I wish each of you a successful first week of class and a fruitful semester ahead. I look forward to welcoming you in person on campus and hope to see you at the many community events and Campus Conversations this fall.
