Dean’s Word

Dear Graduates, Children of the “New World”.

The year 2020 carried a social intensity from various origins: politics, economy, finance, sanitary, etc., altogether invading our daily life. And while struggling to get out of the gloomy reality, we’ve been burning our fingers, trying hard to control the fire we had started, undermining the foundations of Love in our existence. For the time being, Lebanon is in a fairly chaotic situation, at the climax of conflicting powers. Its people’s mind has gone dark, it is true. However, …

I invite you to start a journey with a destination in mind, one where Love goes beyond your nuclear family circle, rises above your private life, and leads you to a factual deconstruction of your personal and collective ideals, aiming to renew our human existence within a revived Lebanon.

This renewal through Love awakens a crucial duty in today’s education within families as well as within educational institutions and will definitely extend and reach an enlightened dimension no one was aware of before: the revolution of Love. Thus, rebuilding a whole new scheme to save our country implies a radical break with some anchored traditions through a revolution that focuses on developing a community whose major concern is to build a livable Lebanon for generations to come.
