TDT | Manama
The American University of Bahrain (AUBH), re-opened its campus in Riffa, following an orientation session for the incoming Class of 2024 students. AUBH Founding President, Dr Susan E. Saxton, outlined the University’s ‘Culture of Care’ philosophy to students and staff and kicked off the semester with a motivational speech about the importance of “showing up” as the first step on the road to success.
This year’s cohort includes students of 16 nationalities across three Colleges of Architecture & Design, Engineering, and Business and Management. Seven new faculty members have joined the international staff. AUBH said it is ensuring the safety and well-being of students through a synchronous, hybrid learning model across all programmes.
This model allows AUBH Students to attend socially-distanced classes on-campus or participate in a virtual setting on the University’s interactive CleverTouch monitors. President Saxton commented: “With an emphasis on our ‘Culture of Care’ philosophy, we prioritise the safety and well-being of our AUBH community and look forward to guiding students as they take their first step towards a lifetime of success.” AUBH said the standard admission process is proceeding for the 2020-2021 academic year, closing on September 24th.
