Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Commitment Statement
The American University of Beirut is committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging within its community. This is consistent with the university’s mission, reflects our core values, and fulfills the goals of the institutional strategy (VITAL 2030). We recognize that the diversity brought by our constituents (including faculty, staff, students, and alumni) enriches our teaching, strengthens our research and practice, and serves our local and global communities.
In line with this commitment, it is the responsibility of all university constituents to ensure that these values are upheld and implemented. The university shall strive to honor the diverse identities, backgrounds, and perspectives of its community members and promote an equitable, inclusive, and welcoming educational and working environment.
All members of the American University of Beirut community are encouraged to work towards honoring these shared values.
