Message from the AUM President
Dr. Lewis Walker
The American University of Malta, or AUM, is a new university for a new world.
I envisage AUM as a cutting-edge, student-centered educational institution that meets the myriad and urgent needs of our still relatively young century. We aim to equip students from across the globe with the requisite critical thinking skills and far-reaching knowledge to become creators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and ethical leaders prepared for the challenges, uncertainties, risks, and opportunities of a rapidly changing world.
Woven into the fabric of AUM’s mission is a strong focus on ethics and the imperative of a social conscience. We want our graduates to be cognizant of their responsibilities toward a too often conflict-ridden humanity and an increasingly ravaged planet. Cultural literacy, respect for others, and sensitivity to the environmental impact of our choices will complement the hard and fast knowledge of economic forces and business practices that AUM instills in its students. The excellence we strive to nurture is one of both mind and heart.
