Mohammed Abu-Nimer, PhD '93, named Abdul Aziz Said Endowed Chair

American University announced the establishment of the Abdul Aziz Said Chair in International Peace and Conflict Resolution at the School of International Service (SIS). SIS Professor Mohammed Abu-Nimer was selected to serve as the inaugural chair holder to advance the development and adoption of faith-informed peace interventions.“It’s very meaningful for me to be the inaugural chair,” said Abu-Nimer. “I shared a journey with Professor Said for over 22 years since I joined AU. We worked together very closely, sharing many ideas and the values and views on building [programs] and supporting diversity and inclusion both in our own AU community and in conflicts around the world. It’s an exciting and honorable occasion for me.”
