President Speech

Welcome to the Lebanese International University, the academic venue that reflects ambition and success under one banner, “Education for All.”

Four decades ago, we started our endeavor towards planning then building an academic hub in Lebanon, as we felt it is our responsibility to look for our society, namely the most vulnerable areas and provide them with a decent learning experience, as it is the right of every future generation to find its adequate place in an educational, scientific and healthy environment. Therefore, we worked on developing the capacities of our academic staff through activities, training sessions and workshops that contribute to shape their capabilities and help them gain the required confidence.

While raising the banner of quality education and standards especially in higher education, we worked hard so as not to have discrepancies between university education and secondary education. That’s why we focused on the adoption of effective standards at the level of infrastructure, curricula, teachers and educators. We have paid special attention for scientific research and our university students were able to invent a submarine, the first by Arab hands, in addition to many inventions produced by the scientific and academic environment created by our dedicated instructors and professors within the university in its nine campuses.

In the process of educational modernization, we have strived to shift from old paradigms of teaching to modern ones in which the student can be a pivotal partner in the conclusion and production of information, and the ability to acquire skills and competencies.

Quality assurance in higher education is an integrated process within a harmonious system from the management to the curricula, instructors, and equipments, in addition to the interaction with the community and the good use of human potential.

Looking forward to your participation to the Eighth International Arab Conference on Quality Assurance in Higher Education.
