AUB has pioneered several kinds of community development projects managed by students and faculty, focusing on sustainable and high-impact interventions in marginalized areas, including poor rural and urban communities and refugee camps and settlements. Dr Shibli explains how they have overcome communities' suspicion about such external interventions -- by identifying with the local community the work to be done, staying engaged for years, and implementing projects that improve people's lives.
