Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs

On behalf of the entire Student Affairs staff, I invite you to take a few minutes to navigate these pages and discover the many outstanding co-curricular activities and experiences that are offered at the American University of Kuwait. The office of Student Affairs is here to assist you, guide you, and challenge you to explore all the possibilities we have to offer to ensure our students develop skills in leadership, teamwork and social responsibility to prepare them for their future roles in society, thereby maximizing student success.

In partnership with our distinguished faculty and our dedicated staff we create a learning centered culture that encourages student development and growth. Students are not only a part of it – they define it! We are just one of the many reasons why the American University of Kuwait is the university of choice for its students.

Be our success story.
