Message from Assistant Vice President for Outreach & Civic Engagement
From Lebanon to New York City, LAU’s Outreach & Civic Engagement has created a unique legacy of simulation models, powered by the intellectual and emotional energy of thousands of student leaders, delegates and school advisors.
Paved with diversity, ethics, peace and justice, OCE’s cultural promenade is guided by the conviction that hope for a better future can be attained and sustained. As such, its programs offer vibrant educational tools that transform youth into vigilant and knowledgeable ambassadors ‘of’ and ‘for’ the future. By design, OCE shuns cultural prejudices, broadens intellectual horizons and bestows leadership skills on the students of today – the decision-makers, agenda-setters and thought-leaders of tomorrow.
True to LAU’s commitment to civic engagement, the education of the whole person, and the formation of leaders in a diverse world, OCE seeks to ensure students’ academic and professional success, to bridge the gap between students and the civil society, and to establish networks for international exchange and collaboration.
