Dr. English Visits Capitol Hill
Dr. Mark A. English, President of American University of Afghanistan (AUAF), recently returned from Washington, D.C. where he literally "walked the halls of Congress", in order to tell the story of AUAF. Dr. English, accompanied by Ms. Joanne Faulkner, a Lobbyist for AUAF on Capitol Hill, met with a number of Representatives and Senators to insure they continue to support Afghanistan and AUAF in any future funding initiatives. Dr. English stated, "The American University of Afghanistan remains a very compelling story of the legacy of the United States in Afghanistan. I was very gratified to hear how much support we have on Capitol Hill. This level of support bodes well for the future of the University."
