Al Akhawayn University was founded in 1994 when King Hassan II addressed the challenges facing Morocco’s system of higher education and emphasized the need for reforms. At the heart of these reforms was the need for educational opportunities that “touch the depths of every individual.” The king implored that these depths be reached by “the creation of a world university which could become the peaceful educational spearhead for all peoples and languages.” In the founding document of Al Akhawayn University, this bold vision was given focus and multidimensional scope. Twin goals were confidently affirmed: promoting universal values as well as advancing the country’s historic vocation as a land of encounters, liberty, and tolerance. Al Akhawayn’s groundbreaking educational mandate was declared to be “a forum for the creation and confrontation of human progress in all fields of knowledge, as well as a framework for cooperation and understanding among people and civilizations.” Al Akhawayn University has three Schools: School of Business Administration, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the School of Science and Engineering. AUI offers 508 courses in 38 academic departments affording students with opportunities to earn one or more of 21 undergraduate and graduate degrees. Each of these intellectually demanding courses of study is anchored in the liberal arts inspired University Core Curriculum, an innovation amongst Moroccan higher education institutions.
