We aspire to deepen the AUC community’s understanding of the United States and its relationship with the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). We aim to present a nuanced view of American involvement in the region. To do so, the center supports high-quality academic research. We engage in a wide variety of outreach and educational programs, including hosting colloquia and public lectures, thus making available a broad range of opportunities for the AUC community, and to highlight the usefulness of American studies to students of diverse interests and career intentions.
