American University of Madaba (AUM)
Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem
Inspired by an education legacy of over 160 years, the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem established the American University of Madaba (AUM). His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI blessed the cornerstone of this University during his pilgrimage to the Holy Land on May 9, 2009.
AUM was officially established by the LPJ in 2005 and in that same year was granted accreditation by the Higher Education Accreditation Commission of Jordan. AUM has also received incorporation in the US, State of New Hampshire, upon recommendation of the New Hampshire Higher Education Commission, on March 22, 2013. The official inauguration of the AUM was held on May 30, 2013, under the patronage of HM King Abdullah II.
