11th Apr 2021 | by the Office of Public Affairs

AUK President, Dr. Rawda Awwad welcomed French Ambassador to Kuwait, H.E. Anne-Claire Legendre, and Academic Attaché, Dr. Benjamin Taunay to the University’s campus to exchange views on research, academic and outreach-related opportunities that are of mutual interest. These long-term discussions remain ongoing and assist in the advancement of AUK as a liberal arts institution.  

“Our American style education based on the liberal arts lends itself to global and multinational outreach and collaboration. We are excited on continuing these conversations that are integral to our institutional growth and development,” stated Dr. Rawda Awwad. 

The Ambassador was provided a tour of the campus and its new building which houses the brand-new state-of-the-art communication and media center, recently developed art and graphic design classrooms, and the latest open computer laboratories. The new Center for Continuing Education (CCE) offices and the University library were also part of the tour.

Over the years, AUK has been working closely with the French embassy with consistent meetings combined with regular follow-ups to sustain the relationship and support mutual scholastic opportunities.
