As part of celebrating the public phase of its comprehensive fundraising campaign “The Legacy and the Promise: LAU Campaign for Excellence,” LAU hosted a gala dinner in Kuwait on March 23, 2010, under the auspices and in the presence of the Minister of Education and Higher Education of Kuwait Dr. Moudi Al-Hammoud. LAUs President Dr. Joseph Jabbra and other University’s officials welcomed to the dinner over 150 prominent Lebanese and Kuwaiti officials, dignitaries, donors, businessmen and academicians.

During the launching event, the guests enjoyed a documentary about LAU, and then listened to Dr. Jabbra sharing with them LAUs current projects, future plans, and figures related to the remarkable progress of the campaign. In recognition of her role in enhancing the education in Kuwait and the Arab World, in addition to her support and belief in LAU, Dr. Jabbra presented a shield to Minister Al-Hammoud who, in her turn, praised LAUs role in elevating the standards of higher education and providing quality education to the region. BIA member and President of Alumni Association- Kuwait Chapter Youmna Salameh was the master of ceremony.

Samir Kadi, Assistant Vice President for Development, is noticing “how much people are eager to know more about LAU during the mini-launches we are organizing all over the Arab World. This trust in our mission, belief in our endeavors, and appreciation of our efforts tell the story of LAU: a higher education institution that was and will always be striving towards spreading academic excellence and quality education in the region”.

LAU is launching its Campaign for Excellence all over the world, especially in the countries where friends, supporters and active Lebanese Diaspora are gathered. The University finds it fundamental to brief its loyal partners and people interested in education on its latest developments and the campaign advancement. These launching events are primordial for LAU to pursue its mission of offering academic excellence and an education second to none to Lebanon and the Arab World.
