About the Magazine

AUCToday is a biannual magazine produced by the Office of Marketing Communication and Public Affairs at The American University in Cairo.

The New Normal: Life Under COVID-19 is an unprecedented issue — created in light of an unprecedented time. It was made entirely remotely using digital platforms for communicating and assembling, from the brainstorming process up until publishing day. With the world on hold and millions of people forced to change their lives, we searched for the stories that define what it is to be an AUCian.

The people in this issue are creative minds, talented artists, quick-thinking business people, researchers searching for ways to impact society and heroes in health care at the frontline of the fight. They are making the most of their surroundings, their resources and the opportunities that have risen to make an impact both in their lives and in the lives of others. Whether it’s putting on concerts from their homes, researching ways to protect the health and safety of Egyptians, volunteering in efforts to curb the spread of the virus or working to find a drug for COVID-19, these AUCians are showing that even in this new normal, the University’s mission carries on.
