Office of the President
Message from Interim President Taban
Dear North American University Family,
It was an honor when I was selected as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at North American University (NAU) in 2017. Since then I feel privileged almost every day and I found myself really lucky to work with all of you.
Recently Board of Trustees appointed me as Interim President until the permanent one is determined. I will continue to serve best of my ability in order to fulfill what’s expected.
During the last couple of years, NAU has been and still is in a very important transition. We are constantly growing and breaking our own records in many aspects, including enrollment, community outreach, grants applied, athletics; big kudos to all NAU Family members that work tirelessly to make things happen within a short period of time, especially in the midst of the pandemic. As I’ve said in almost all-employee meetings, NAU is one of the finest higher education institutions in the region. Moving forward, NAU, a private and non-profit institution, will only prosper further to educate students and contribute to the community.
Dr. Faruk Taban
