From giving to volunteerism, alumni trustees choose to “pay it forward” to their alma mater

The Board of Trustees is one prime example of volunteers who dedicate their time and resources to supporting the University. Coming from a range of backgrounds, AUC’s trustees include many alumni in the areas of business, law, education, philanthropy and scholarship. Primarily Egyptians and Americans, the trustees do not receive any compensation. They provide generous financial support to the University, in addition to their fiduciary responsibilities.
