A Banner Year for the Gibran Chair
The George and Lisa Zakhem Kahlil Gibran Chair for Values and Peace at the University of Maryland is an endowed academic program that strengthens understanding between Eastern and Western cultures in general, and the Arab ethos and American values in particular.
"The Gibran Chair has continued to thrive under May Rihani's leadership, with many new activities, events and writings. Now more than ever, civil and inclusive discourse on matters pertaining to world peace is of the utmost importance," said Dean Gregory Ball. "We continue to be inspired by the Gibran Chair, and by the legacy of Kahlil Gibran."
