A committed member of LAU for 30 years, Ms. Nuha Azar, will be retiring soon. She has been the Executive Secretary to both Presidents Joseph Jabbra and Riyad Nassar since 1987.

She previously worked for ten years as the Executive Secretary to the Director of LAU’s Institute for Women’s Studies in the Arab World. During that time, its founding director, Dr. Julinda Abu Nasr, encouraged her to continue her education; she did, and received an A.A. degree in Business Management from BUC in 1983.

Azar modestly says that the presidents and the community are those who have made the achievements at LAU; her role was to support them in their job. In fact, her day-to-day tasks have cumulatively assisted two of LAU’s top officers. She considers herself lucky for having worked with such distinguished people and having been there at the time the Byblos campus was built.

Her coworkers will greatly miss her, and she says she will equally miss them. She “is a good friend and good colleague. She is helpful, hard-working, good hearted, sociable, and always ready to help everybody,” said the Executive Secretary to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Ruby Khalaf, who has worked with her for 15 years.

After retiring, Azar would like to continue contributing to LAU’s advancement by spreading the university’s reputation and good image and inspiring friends and family to do so.
