One hundred years in the making, AUC’s centennial celebration is a yearlong global affair. From New York to London, Geneva to Dubai, we are celebrating in major cities around the world. The festivities kicked off in our beloved Cairo on our iconic Tahrir Square campus. The centennial launch event began with the inauguration of the Tahrir Cultural Center, followed by a full-day program of festivities. The celebration continues throughout the year with an extensive program of events and activities across the globe, including 100 Years of Community Service and 100 Years of Student Union; the first Centennial International Day that is open to the public; our largest Benefit Dinner at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; more than seven international conferences, exhibitions and lectures; in addition to a full week of events at AUC New Cairo in February 2020.
