Collaboration and Innovation for Sustainability
LAU and Boise State U. students collaborated to develop innovative solutions while overcoming communication barriers. In one project, they had to identify strategic differentiators for a company addressing one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
LAU and AUB have been developing a walking aid in an ongoing collaboration with paraplegic endurance athlete Michael Haddad. The innovation project, launched years ago by an LAU faculty member, has resulted in a light design that requires no external energy source.
A promising solution to the rampant organic pollution from industries around the Litani River is in development. The project, which makes use of anaerobic digestion methods, is led by an LAU engineering faculty member.
Dozens of artists, among them LAU alumni and faculty, donated art pieces which the university auctioned to raise funds for financial aid. It’s a cross-generational spirit: One of the artists, now of international stature, had herself received aid here as a student in the 1970s.
