OFFICIALS OF AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF ARMENIA VISIT PRELATE
Archbishop Oshagan welcomed two officials from the American University of Armenia (AUB), who visited him at the Prelacy this week. Ms. Arina Zohrabian, Director of Admissions, and Mr. Matt Senekeremian, Assistant Director of Development, informed the Prelate about the growth and progress of the university and the role of the Diaspora in its future.
The American University of Armenia was founded in 1991 during a period of transition toward independence and soon after the 1988 earthquake. Today, nearly a quarter of a century since its founding, AUA continues to be the only U.S. accredited university in the former Soviet Union territory and the only university in the region offering an American education. Most recently, AUA initiated a program created to meet the growing needs of Armenia’s Syrian-Armenian refugees who have resettled in Armenia.
