Promotion of Dr. Baalbaki sign now

We, the undersigned, are shocked by the decision taken by the board of trustees not to promote Dr. Riad Baalbaki, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences.

All of us undersigned have worked with Dr. Baalbaki, either as students or as colleagues. As students, Dr. Baalbaki has left a deep impact on us, consolidating and shaping our minds by his systematic, challenging and interactive teaching and his determination to initiate in us analytical thinking, research skills, positive criticism and belief in our own abilities as future scientists and community members. As colleagues, we have all learnt from Dr. Baalbakis excellent research scholarship, from his generosity in sharing his knowledge with us, and from his services to the School of Agricultural and Food Sciences and to the broader AUB community.

It is our strong conviction that Dr Baalbaki is a valuable asset not only to the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences but also to AUB and the broader Lebanese society. For more than twelve years, Dr Baalbaki has served the community through his multidisciplinary research, his devotion to students, his contribution to various national and regional research forums, and his restless efforts to help students at all times.

These qualities make Dr. Baalbaki invaluable to us as an educator and as a scientist. We are simply shocked and outraged at the idea of him being forced to leave the university. In his absence, things will not be the same. If AUBs mission is to ensure that those who walk through its gates to learn and acquire knowledge and understanding will have life and have it more abundantly, then Dr. Baalbaki helped us most in achieving this aim.

We, the undersigned, therefore urge the board of trustees to reconsider its decision whose consequences will be devastating both to the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and to the quality of education that future generations will receive at AUB.
