Message from Campus Director


"AUB Goes Hult! It is your turn today to act and make our world a better place. Join us in the Hult Prize and challenge. The challenge selected for this year by President Bill Clinton is "Refugees - Reawakening Human Potential." It will focus on restoring the rights and dignity of people and societies who may be, or are forced into motion due to social injustices, politics, economic pressures, climate change and war. We will also work to restore the rights and dignity of those currently living in informal / illegal settlements. Through this competition, win US$1,000,000. Compete in the planet’s largest student competition to solve the world's toughest challenges. A team of you, my dear AUBites, will be representing all of us at the upcoming Hult Prize Regional Finals happening on March 4, 2017. This is our chance to show the world that our institution is dedicated to Impact. Make it happen and let us see you in New York! Special thanks to the Center for Research and Innovation (CRInn), the Technology Transfer Unit, and the Office of Grants & Contracts at AUB, and to their Director Dr. Fadia Homeidan, who made the AUB goes Hult happen."
