In an ever-evolving global landscape, we diligently adapt to stay abreast of the latest developments and transformations to equip our graduates with the knowledge and skills needed to become impactful global citizens, capable of effecting positive change within their communities and on a global scale,” said Dr. Mohamed El Tarhuni, Interim Provost and Chief Academic Officer at AUS.
