The International Association of Universities and Notre Dame University – Louaize (NDU) jointly organized this international event to investigate the Role of Higher Education in Fostering the Culture of Dialogue and Understanding - a theme in line with the IAU’s goal to promote cooperation and understanding at the international, regional and national levels and contribute to freedom and justice, human dignity and solidarity through teaching and learning, research and service. Given Lebanon’s diversity and the country’s need to find a harmonious way to life for all its citizens, Notre Dame University – Louaize (NDU) was particularly pleased to host this IAU international Conference.
The conference brought together higher educational leaders, scholars and students to discuss how higher education today, contributes or could contribute to creating a culture of dialogue at the institutional, local, regional and international levels.
