Event @ the World Affairs Council, 05/22
“Higher Education and the Next Generation of Middle East Leaders”
Who: David Arnold, President, The American University in Cairo
Event: Why, when public opinion of the United States in the Middle East is reaching new lows, has American higher education in the region never been more popular? Despite the U.S.’s deteriorating status among many Middle Easterners, the demand for American universities in the region has increased. Arabs still hold the American style liberal arts education in very high regard. After almost five years as president of the American University in Cairo, David Arnold reflects on the next generation of Arab leaders and the role of American higher education serving as an educational and cultural bridge between the Arab world and the United States.
