Our Community of Learning: A Strategic Plan for AUC at its Centennial

The essential mission of all universities is to foster learning and, on the eve of its second century, the American University in Cairo is rededicating itself to this fundamental purpose. Just as our spectacular campus in New Cairo was intentionally designed as “a city for learning,” so too our aspirations for the University as a whole should intentionally reflect a constantly renewed commitment to facilitating learning in all dimensions of the University’s operation: for its students through its degree programs; for its faculty through its research; and for its community and world through its local civic engagement and global outreach. AUC is a community of learning. In many ways, the American University in Cairo is blessed with exceptional resources with which to pursue this purpose. It is located in one of the most important cities in the world — and in the 21st century, locations which afford access to urban and global resources are increasingly important. It has a distinguished history of nearly a century of service to Egypt, the region and the world. It enjoys a loyal, appreciative and influential alumni community, a strong and rising global reputation, a robust applicant pool that includes many of the most talented young people in Egypt and a diverse, skilled and dedicated faculty. This strategic plan is designed to capitalize on those strengths as AUC approaches its centennial in 2019 to ensure that it sustains and enhances its quality and distinction in the fast-changing world of the 21st century. Read More about AUC’s Strategic Plan
