AUK Celebrates 10-Year Milestone

10 year logo with slogan

A decade ago, the American University of Kuwait (AUK) opened its doors. Today, Kuwait's first liberal arts college is an unequivocal success. "Over the past 10 years, we have obtained national and international accreditation for our academic programs, received institutional achievement awards, and won numerous inter-collegial competitions," noted AUK president Nizar Hamzeh. "I am confident that we will continue this path of excellence if we maintain our commitment to our mission, vision and goals."

AUK Chronicle celebrates the school's milestone achievement with a special issue that includes
