Originally called the AUB Services Corporation, it was known for many years as the Office of Regional External Programs (REP). The office was reorganized in 2020. The Center for Continuing Education, which was part of REP, is now part of the Office of the Provost. Executive education is now managed by the respective AUB faculty. Consulting and business development are now the responsibility of a new Office of Business Development, which is part of the Office of Advancement.​
