American University of Kuwait/PRM.All Rights Reserved.A Message from the PresidentDear AUK Community:Welcome to the 2008–2009 academic year! We alllook forward to a new and exciting year. Seventeennew faculty members have joined the University forthe Fall 2008 semester and participated in the HRFaculty Orientation (24-25 August) and the generalFall 2008 Faculty and Staff Orientation on the 11thof September.New faculty and staff have been adapting to theunfamiliar circumstances of Kuwait as well as toRamadan. Ramadan, an Islamic Holy Month, is observed by fasting fromsunrise to sunset. It is a special time where many Muslims offer extra prayersand donate more food and money to charity. AUK invited all staff and facultyto partake in celebrating this month with a traditional Ramadan Ghabga at theHilton Resort on the 20th of September. Ghabga is a late-night meal that comesafter the futoor (breaking of the fast) and before the suhoor (early morningmeal before daybreak) during Ramadan. This is a Kuwaiti custom, not alwaysfound in other Arab countries.Classes began during Ramadan on 21st September, and so class schedules havebeen adjusted in order to accommodate our fasting students, staff, and faculty.The University will adjourn for futoor at 5:00 PM and will resume operationat 7:30 PM. Please refer to the AUK Registrar webpage (http://www.auk.edu.kw/registrar/default.jsp) for more details regarding the Ramadan courseschedule. Ramadan-oriented activities will take place as students return, andon-campus futoors will be held at the Ramadan Tent next to the Liberal Artsbuilding and the soccer field. Campus Services and Student Affairs have workedhard to provide students with the logistics to celebrate Ramadan, including thenew, permanent Student Lounge, located near Gate 2 of the AUK campus.Regular class schedule and office work hours will be in effect starting on Sunday,October 5th.New and continuing employees need to know both their AUK colleagues andsenior administrators.
