Restructuring of the Provost’s Office

Dear Colleagues,

In an effort to effectively meet the strategic vision of LAU as a globally engaged comprehensive university, President Mawad has approved the restructuring plan of the Provost’s Office to strategically align with the university’s focus on high impact educational and research practices, innovative delivery of curriculum, faculty development and excellence, wider partnerships and collaborations worldwide, international education and meaningful institutional presence outside Lebanon.

The new Provost’s Office will now include an Associate Provost and three Assistant Provosts who will be helping the Provost in coordinating and advancing university wide academic activities and strategic initiatives.

I am happy to also announce that President Mawad approved my recommendation to appoint the following faculty members to these Provost’s Office positions, effective January 1, 2022:

Please join me in congratulating Drs. Akle, Diab, Khoury and Srour on their new or continued roles in service to the University, and in supporting them in their responsibilities and crucial tasks ahead. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year, hoping that 2022 will be kinder and gentler to us all! 

All the best,

George E. Nasr, Ph.D.
