AUC established and endowed the Nadia Younes Award for Public and Humanitarian Service, allowing AUC to recognize and reward the best two graduating seniors who have exhibited the most commitment to community and humanitarian service.
The obligation of educated people to invest in communities through service initiatives is one of the distinguishing characteristics of a liberal arts education. Well-organized student involvement in community service is critical and, as AUC’s mission statement affirms, is “essential to foster students’ appreciation of their own culture and heritage and of their responsibilities to society.”
This award is an exceptional tribute to Nadia Younes’ service as well as to the students who have achieved this honor.
