American University of the Middle East (AUM) was established in 2008 with the goal of becoming a leading university in Kuwait and the Middle East. The university prides itself on being an oasis of learning in Kuwait where students can gain an understanding of current and future challenges at the local and global level. To support this mission, it is important for AUM to have talented, diverse faculty from different educational and cultural backgrounds.
AUM has experienced first hand the improved productivity and increased innovation that comes from having a diverse workforce. That’s why AUM partnered with Academic Positions to promote their faculty vacancies internationally. Through Academic Positions, AUM receives applications from candidates from different nationalities and with different backgrounds. AUM’s students also benefit from the university’s internationally diverse faculty by gaining a multicultural perspective that will allow them to become global citizens. Working with Academic Positions helps AUM promote a culture of diversity, inclusiveness and innovation.
