As the academic year comes to a close and we honor our graduates, we cannot but admire the grit, integrity and passion for education that they have shown under circumstances that have challenged the strongest among us.
They have proven to be true champions of the moral and ethical values that their university upholds, steadfast in their pursuit of what is right, and of the education that will help them achieve it.
LAU Now was conceived to bear witness to the dauntless spirit demonstrated in myriad ways by our faculty and staff. Previous editions have illustrated their fortitude during lockdown, in the aftermath of the Port of Beirut explosion, and under the economic crisis. This fourth edition is dedicated to our graduates of 2021 who have inspired us all and renewed our belief that they can, and will, be our hope for the future.
