AUK Board of Trustees Holds its 22nd Biannual Meeting

Founder and Chair of the American University of Kuwait, Shaikha Dana Al-Nasser Al-Sabah, convened with members of the Board of Trustees and the Academic Affairs Committee during the 22nd Biannual BoT Meeting in April to review reports from the various areas of the University and discuss future plans for AUK. The meeting was the first to be attended by Dr. Tim Sullivan in his role as the newly appointed President of AUK, who had previously served AUK as Interim President in 2010 and was a voting Board Member until present.

Shaikha Dana commenced by greeting the attendees to the Spring 2017 meeting of the Board of Trustees and welcoming Dr. Tim Sullivan to the Board. "We are very pleased to have him on board as we look forward to putting in place our broader strategic initiatives," she said.

After introductions from Shaikha Dana, the Chair of the Board of Academic Affairs Committee (BAAC) Dr. Thomas Bartlett, presented the BAAC Report, which was then followed by President Tim Sullivan's Report and the Budget Report.

Following the reports presentations, Shaikha Dana announced the completion of the new Student Center and updated the Board on ongoing development and expansion projects, including the obtaining of accreditations and the beginning of construction of a new generic building that is scheduled to be completed in Fall 2019. "While we are focusing on improving our campus, we are also making progress in receiving and seeking accreditation for our programs, in developing our academic areas, and in recruiting faculty" she said, and added "Our mission is to differentiate ourselves and provide our students with broader learning experiences."

The Board of Trustees is AUK's governing body. The Board's terms of reference are outlined in the AUK By-Laws. The self-perpetuating and self-governing Board is currently composed of 8 members, in addition to the University President and the Dartmouth College Relationship Coordinator (Director) as ex-officio member. The Board of Trustees meets twice a year in AUK's Salmiya campus.
