AUS Chancellor Dr Björn Kjerfve announced the appointment of Dr Susan Karamian as the university’s new Provost and Chief Academic Officer and Charles A. Diab as the Executive Director of Advancement and Alumni Affairs.

The two appointments were approved by the AUS Board of Trustees and endorsed by His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah and President of AUS.

Chancellor Kjerfve stated, “We are very excited to have Karamian and Diab join AUS.

“They bring with them new perspectives in education and we are confident they will contribute to the development of the university.

“We need people with this level of experience to help us realise the vision of AUS as the top provider of American-style higher education in the region.”
