Bruce Boghosian Named AUA President

OAKLAND, Calf.—The American University of Armenia (AUA) will officially welcome incoming president Bruce Boghosian and wife Laura Boghosian at receptions in New York City and Boston in August. AUA is widely regarded as the centerpiece of America’s commitment to higher education and development in Armenia and the Caucasus. Boghosian is the university’s third president since its doors opened on the first day of Armenia’s independence in 1991.

The New York City reception will be hosted by the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) at its headquarters on Aug. 10. The AGBU encouraged and helped support the university from its earliest days. The Boston reception on Aug. 12 will be held at the headquarters of the Armenian Cultural Foundation (ACF), which co-sponsors the event along with the Armenian International Women’s Association (AIWA), the Armenian Library and Museum of America (ALMA), and the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research (NAASR).

Dr. Bruce Boghosian and his wife, Laura, reside in Lexington, Mass. Their children, Taline and Aram, also reside in the Boston area. Bruce Boghosian has degrees in physics and applied science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California Davis, and is currently a professor and chair of mathematics at Tufts University. Laura Boghosian has degrees in political science and journalism from the University of Connecticut and the University of California, Berkeley, and currently writes and works on issues pertaining to genocide recognition.

With its English-language curriculum and U.S. accreditation, AUA brings the American model of graduate education to Armenia. AUA graduates are leaders in fields as diverse as law, public health, and environmental protection, serving as catalysts for attracting investment to Armenia, spurring rural development, and expanding Armenia’s participation in the global economy.

AUA also offers American students the opportunity to study in Armenia and earn credits that can be transferred to their home institutions. Graduate students can earn an American-accredited masters’ degree while experiencing Armenian culture and developing lifelong friendships with some of the most talented students from the region.
