The Arab American Educational Foundation and the University of Houston joined to sign an agreement launching the Center for Arab Studies. This video shows the remarks at the launch reception by donor Nijad Fares, the AAEF President Dr. Aziz Shaibani and University of Houston Chancellor Dr. Renu Khator.
Dr. Aziz Shaibani is the President, leading a dedicated board of 15 Directors. A distinguished Advisory Board provides valuable counsel. Our most recent achievement was the March 2019 agreement with the University of Houston to establish a Center for Arab Studies.
The Arab-American Educational Foundation, Inc. (AAEF) was established in Houston in 1985 as a non-profit organization. We have produced many educational events and became the only organization in the country to establish two chairs of Arab studies at different universities in the same city: at Rice University and the University of Houston. These achievements have been made possible by generous donations from the Arab-American community.
We exist to promote understanding of Arab culture, history, and language, through the endowment of university chairs and the sponsoring of academic programs, lecture series, cultural performances, scholarships, and research. The AAEF has no political or religious affiliation, and depends solely on the generosity of its donors.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
