American University of Madaba (AUM)

     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. The official inauguration of the AUM was held on May 30, 2013, under the patronage of HM King Abdullah II.
