FAU launches Middle East Institute

FAU and the Middle East society are in the midst of a fundraising effort to raise $100,000 a year for activities, with long-range plans for a $9 million endowment, said Polly Burks, a spokeswoman for FAU’s College of Arts and Letters.

“FAU has long been committed to Middle East studies in both teaching and research,” said Manjunath Pendakur, dean of the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. “With the creation of the Middle East Institute, FAU will be able to expand its research and cultural activities related to this complex region. … We will strive to promote an understanding among the next generation of national leaders and the public at large about the peoples, languages, cultures and religions of the Middle East.”
