Celebrating the transformative power of generosity

London, United Kingdom, 29 September 2018 - A panel discussion with AKU’s leadership including Trustees Princess Zahra Aga Khan and Naguib Kheraj, President Rasul and Provost Amrhein, on the university’s future growth, and its aspirations to become a liberal arts institution. During the discussion, Princess Zahra spoke about the vital importance of the liberal arts, as a means through which students can “access the broadest possible number of topics to allow you or any student to learn.” She added, “It’s about acquiring the skills to review something critically, to approach a problem in a creative way, and not just be focused on one solution; to be able to access multiple solutions, of your own volition.” For AKU, such an approach will be critical as it further evolves towards fulfilling its mission of developing and harnessing human capacity and talent for leadership.  ​
