AUC's 13th President Search
The American University in Cairo’s Board of Trustees has launched a search for a successor to AUC President Francis Ricciardone, who will retire at the end of the 2020-2021 academic year. The Board formed a committee of ten trustees and five senior faculty members to conduct the search and to provide input to the Board. In accordance with the University bylaws, the full Board elects the president.
