NNA - The Lebanese American University President, Dr. Jabbra confers degrees upon class of 2020




NNA - In an emotional online address, Dr. Jabbra touches on the crisis in Lebanon and offers valuable parting advice.

Although LAU hopes to hold an in-person graduation ceremony once health warnings are lifted, LAU President Joseph G. Jabbra was adamant to convey his heartfelt message online to the LAU's Class of 2020.


In an address broadcast on Sunday, July 12, Dr. Jabbra conferred the degrees upon more than 2,000 graduates from both campuses for one final time before passing the torch this fall, following 16 years of service to LAU.


Touching on the "serious and pervasive circumstances that are threatening the overwhelming majority of the Lebanese and the very existence of our country," the president urged the graduates not to despair, to stay and fight for a better Lebanon and create career opportunities.



"Lebanon needs your refreshing youth and noble aspirations - it needs your strong commitment and burning passion to reform itself," he declared, calling on the graduates to "actively participate in creating a new Lebanon that is free of devastating dissension, divisive discrimination, destructive fanaticism, damaging gender inequality and criminal corruption."



He went on to congratulate them for having earned their rite of passage, and thanked them for significantly contributing to LAU's academic programs, enriching its student life, animating the diverse clubs and giving vitality to its simulation programs. "You will be our amazing ambassadors to the world and have access to a powerful network of 43 alumni chapters the world over," noted Dr. Jabbra.

Named in memory of the late LAU engineering student, the Charbel Khairallah Endowed Award of Excellence in Engineering was given to Joseph Chakar.
