President’s Letter
Lisa Anderson
AUC has long been a part of the Egyptian educational landscape and what
happens in the country, in turn, shapes what happens at the University. From
the time it first opened its doors in the Tahrir Square campus, AUC has created
a safe space for students, scientists and scholars to explore the complex political,
social and cultural dimensions of their world. In 1930, when Cairo physician
Fakhry Farag’s speech —“Shall Women Have Rights and Obligations Equal to
Men?” — resulted in protests, AUC President Charles Watson explained that
genuine education requires that all viewpoints should be heard, establishing
AUC as an open forum of reasoned debate. More than nine decades and a
revolution later, AUC’s Tahrir Square campus continues to be home to regular
public dialogues, where all viewpoints about key issues facing Egypt continue to
be heard. AUC New Cairo extends this rich tradition by serving not only as the
home of all of the University’s degree programs, but also as a new cultural and
community hub for New Cairo.
In the 2011 - 2012 academic year, on the heals of Egypt’s revolution, the University
recommitted itself to be of service to Egypt, and faculty and students deployed
much of their research and scholarship to the pursuit of projects to advance a
country in transition. As Egypt and its neighbors forged a new beginning at the
dawn of the Arab Spring, never was there a greater need for the youthful energy,
purposeful drive and innovative ideas found in the graduates of AUC.
On behalf of the faculty, students and staff, I would like to thank the
University ’s donors whose generous contributions support our mission of
providing excellent education, promoting advanced research, and fostering
service to Egypt and the world.
Despite the operational challenges presented by the uncertainty in Egypt
that AUC faced in the 2011 - 2012 academic year, the University remained
steadfast in its commitment to delivering the highest quality educational and
research opportunities, and achieved important milestones on several fronts.
On the academic front, AUC recorded the highest admissions scores for
incoming students, introduced new academic programs, and secured a number
of prestigious, program-specific accreditations for its degrees — a testament to
the continuing rise in the quality of its academic programs.
AUC continues to enhance community life in New Cairo, as seen through the
inauguration of the faculty housing complex, and has decided to move forward
with additional faculty housing to be completed in the summer of 2013. The
University is also taking care to minimize its impact on the environment by
minimizing its carbon footprint. In addition to producing a report identifying
ways to reduce greenhouse gases emitted by the University, AUC successfully
reduced its energy consumption by 20 percent, serving as a role model for others
in sustainable development.
I am very pleased to welcome two new members to AUC’s distinguished Board
of Trustees who were elected to the board in the 2011 - 2012 academic year:
Atef Eltoukhy, chairman of Aurum Capital Management, and Philip F. Maritz,
a business executive with experience in real estate and finance. These trustees
bring to the board their keen business sense, deep commitment to education and
philanthropy, and interest in the Middle East.
Richard A. Bartlett
Chairman’s Letter
AUC’s new faculty housing complex, only 400 meters away from the New Cairo campus, opened its doors in Summer 2012
Starts at Home
Building a community on campus and beyond its borders,
AUC is making an impact in both the New Cairo and
downtown communities. With the inauguration of the
faculty housing complex across from campus, the University
has taken another step — with 27 faculty pioneers and
their families — toward a more vibrant campus life that
is a part of the New Cairo community. The new housing
allows faculty members to save valuable commute time and
adds to the sense of community on campus.
Being an engaged member of the community also means
caring about what happens to our environment and being
committed to the values of sustainable development.
In 2012, AUC became the first institution of higher
education in the Middle East and North Africa to conduct
a comprehensive study of its own impact on climate
change by measuring its carbon footprint — the quantity
of greenhouse gases that an organization emits into the
atmosphere over a period of time. The report, which
was spearheaded by AUC’s Desert Development Center
and Office of Sustainability, was the result of campuswide efforts incorporating the work of faculty, students
and staff. It identifies many strategies for reducing the
University’s carbon footprint and energy expenditures.
“Through evaluating our own impact on the environment,
we take the first step in working to reduce greenhouse gas
emissions on our campus and serve as a leader and champion
for others to begin addressing the climate change challenge
with us,” said President Lisa Anderson, explaining that the
report not only illuminates a course of action, but also
serves as a model for similar efforts throughout the region.
“This study is critical because it gives us
the information we need to set priorities
for future campus sustainability
initiatives. Put simply, curbing our
carbon emissions, and convincing others
to do likewise, will help sustain the longterm viability of Egyptian society.”
— Marc Rauch,
sustainability coordinator
Citizenship and Scholarship Go Hand in Hand
Believing that engaged students make better scholars and
better citizens, the University introduced the new AUC
Empower Scholarship, which gives five top students from
five governorates across Egypt the opportunity to pursue
an AUC undergraduate education in the major of their
choice. Students from Assiut, Bani Suef, Menya, Sohag

“The American University in Cairo,

in providing the kind of liberal arts
education that equips graduates with
the critical-thinking skills and broad
knowledge they need to compete and excel
in today’s globalized world.”
— Yousef Jameel, a long-time
University donor and devoted alumnus
As the new Egypt is born, there is a growing need to develop a cadre of highly skilled Egyptian professionals in the
areas of public policy and administration, journalism, advocacy and law who are able to serve their country and shape its
future. Addressing this pressing need, Yousef Jameel, a prominent Saudi Arabian business leader, philanthropist, long-time
University supporter and devoted alumnus, established the Yousef Jameel GAPP Public Leadership Fund. The fund will
provide support for 300 fellows in 12 cohorts of 25 Egyptian graduate students per year to attend AUC’s School of Global
Affairs and Public Policy.
“I have always believed that investing in education and in our youth is the way forward,” said Jameel. “The American
University in Cairo, my alma mater, is a proven leader in providing the kind of liberal arts education that equips graduates
with the critical-thinking skills and broad knowledge they need to compete and excel in today’s globalized world.” In order
to ensure diversity among the Jameel Public Leadership Fellows, 60 percent of the fellowships are granted in public policy
and administration programs, 20 percent in law and another 20 percent in journalism and mass communication. Fellowship
recipients will also be at least 50 percent female, 25 percent non-Cairo residents and 25 percent employees at public or
nonprofit organizations.
Community in the Classroom
While community-based learning (CBL) — an approach
that integrates service activities into academic curricula —
has always been an integral part of AUC’s mission, the
new, pressing needs of post-revolutionary Egypt have been
embedded in numerous courses. A CBL course titled Values,
Activism and the New Egypt, was introduced in Fall 2011
and had 42 students from different disciplines engaged in
a variety of community-service activities centered around
ways to build the new Egypt. Throughout the course,
students engaged in debates and discussions on their
individual and collective visions for the new Egypt, from
teaching literacy and volunteering to raising awareness of
political and social issues. Ahmed Elhamy, who took the
course to counter his “passiveness,” is now considering
launching a student club that would raise awareness about
different topics of social relevance. “As part of the project,
we worked to raise awareness on sexual harassment as a
dangerous phenomenon in society via different channels
such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as building awareness
in schools and creating videos on the issue,” he said.
“Since Egypt lacks democracy, social
responsibility and teamwork, it then
becomes incumbent on all Egyptians to
overcome the political passiveness and
indifference that appear to have been
rooted in society in recent years.”

Research Solutions to Real-world Problems
Researchers at AUC are working to find answers to the
most compelling needs facing Egypt — a fast and cheap
diagnostic test for hepatitis C, clues to unlock the ancient
roots of cancer and clean energy sources. AUC researchers
have developed a novel test to diagnose hepatitis C, of which

disease in Egypt and around the world. Salima Ikram,
professor of Egyptology, was among an international team
of experts who discovered new radiological findings that
may potentially dispel the long-held belief that cancer is a
man-made, modern-day disease.
With the looming energy crisis in Egypt and the depletion
of petroleum and natural-gas reserves, searching for sources
of alternate fuel becomes all the more important. Inside
AUC’s nanotechnology labs, researchers are working to find
ways to create “smart energy” to produce renewable fuels
and electricity from sunlight on a sustainable basis. Using
nanotechnology techniques, or the science of the very small,
scientists are making big advances in combating chronic
problems like reducing greenhouse gases and lessening the
burden on natural resources for generations to come. “The
international community is aware of the crisis arising from
the use of fossil fuels and is increasingly focusing on the
development of zero-carbon emission technologies using
renewable-energy sources,” said Nageh Allam, assistant
professor of nanotechnology and renewable energy in the
Department of Physics.
“We’re starting to see that the causes of
cancer seem to be less environmental,
more genetic. Living conditions in
ancient times were very different.
There were no pollutants or modified
foods, which leads us to believe that the
disease is not necessarily only linked to
industrial factors.”

Outreach from Tahrir Square to New Cairo
From Tahrir Dialogues and efforts to preserve the murals on Mohamed Mahmoud Street to thoughtful political analysis
from faculty scholars, public forums and community projects by students, the contribution to the future of Egypt remains a
central focus for AUC. Under the After Tahrir initiative, AUC launched numerous programs to integrate the revolution into
the academic and cultural life of the University, as well as address critical issues facing the country. Of these, the exhibition
titled Tahrir: 18 Days that Changed the World is one of the most apparent. The culmination of a student-led initiative and

semester-long independent study, the exhibition features more than 20 mosaic murals at the Conference and Visitor Center,
near Bassily Auditorium, ranging in size from 3 by 4 meters to more than 7 by 14 meters. “The murals largely emphasize
the emotions of the revolution, starting with joy,” explained David London, who served as assistant professor of journalism
and mass communication and supervised the student project. The distinctive appearance of the murals comes from the fact
that they are made up of thousands of smaller pictures of varied color, contrast and tone. “Over the course of the semester,
students collected more than 12,000 pictures of the revolution. We then used a freeware program to format the images
and arrange them to create the larger ones,” said London,
adding that the murals are an attempt to emphasize the role
of women and youth in the uprising.
In addition to art exhibitions, well-known figures and
leading activists had the opportunity to speak at AUC
through various lecture series on campus. These include
the Tahrir Dialogue, a series of debates, organized by the
School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, on key issues
facing Egyptian citizens as they define a way forward;
Transforming Egypt, panel discussions held by the School of
Business to explore the business and economic ramifications
of the revolution; as well as Egypt in Transition: Know
Your Role, a public seminar series organized by the John D.
Gerhart Center for Philanthropy and Civic Engagement to
raise awareness among Egyptians of their civic rights and
obligations. In addition, new courses were introduced and
old ones adjusted to reflect the changing political, social and
economic conditions in Egypt. In response to the changing
work environment, AUC’s continuing and executive
education institutions also developed a portfolio of training
programs for business, government and civil society.
“The murals largely emphasize the
emotions of the revolution, starting with
joy. …emotions such as frustration,
anger, pride and sorrow. We hope to
channel the energy and enthusiasm of the
revolution into the work needed to build
a new Egypt.”

expenses totaled $170.9 million, resulting in an operating deficit of about $1 million. Major revenue sources include net tuition and fees,
which ended at $97.9 million. Financial aid and scholarships, which is treated as discount on tuition, was about $29 million, an increase
of $6 million from $23 million in financial aid in the prior year. Revenue from adult education programs was $11.7 million, about $1.5
million lower than in the prior year, mainly due to the periodic shutdown of AUC Tahrir Square, where most of these programs are
offered. Sponsored research income amounted to about $17 million, and endowment and interest income totaled $26.2 million.
On the expense side, the largest share is spent on faculty and staff salaries and benefits, which totaled $100 million. Supplies and services
were $45 million and depreciation about $25 million. These expenses are also categorized according to function as follows: academic
and academic support represented about 50 percent of all expenses at $85.7 million; administrative and general expenses followed at 26
percent, or $44.5 million; continuing education stood at about 10 percent of all expenses at $17.5 million; auxiliary enterprises were at
8.7 percent, or $14.9 million; and research expenses were a little under 5 percent or $8.3 million.
