HISTORY OF MEU HISTORY OF MEU From our establishment in 1939, Middle East University (MEU) has strived to be a diverse institution accepting of people from all cultures and backgrounds. As a higher-education institution operated by the global Seventh-day Adventist denomination, MEU is connected to the second largest Christian education system in the world; second only to that of the Roman Catholic Church. This allows the University to benefit from a constant flow of international staff and students from throughout the world, fostering an intellectually and internationally open environment. Originally founded as the...
Campus Campus MEU’s unique location sets us apart from other institutions of higher education throughout Lebanon. Our University is situated on 30 hectares of lush green hillside in Sabtieh and we prides ourself as possessing one of the remaining “green areas” at the outskirts of Beirut’s urban sprawl. In a survey recently distributed to students, nearly 60% listed the campus environment as their favorite aspects of the University. Visitors to campus consistently comment on MEU's incredible environment, the breathtaking view of Beirut and the Mediterranean Sea, and the peaceful atmosphere pervading...
Academics Academics For over 70 years, MEU has been educating and empowering students to reach their best. As a well established educational institution within Lebanon, we take pride in our academics. However, we also endeavor to foster a nurturing environment between students and instructors. Our staff take a vested interest in students as individuals, encouraging their future success. As a Christian university, we also promote the spiritual development of our students.

Spiritual Life

Spiritual Growth and Development

spiritualAt MEU, we emphasize the development of students as whole individuals, mentally, physically, emotionally, and especially, spiritually. Therefore, apart from all of our academic requirements and social activities, we aim to ensure that students’ spiritual needs are adequately met.

Because of this, we’d like to stress the availability of all faculty and staff members as people with whom students can talk about and receive counsel on a wide variety of subject matters. While we realize that we are a Seventh-day Adventist Christian institution, we do not discriminate and we whole-heartedly welcome individuals from all religious faiths and affiliations.

Faculty and staff members will not criticize or turn away students who believe differently than them. Rather, we would like to foster a place for open discussions and ideas based upon the biblical principal mentioned in Isaiah 1:18 (“Come now let us reason together says the Lord.”). Students are welcome to respectfully disagree with MEU faculty and staff on spiritual and religious subject matters as long as the channels of communication are kept open.

Campus Ministries Office

While we place emphasis on the availability of all faculty and staff members, the Campus Ministries Team, lead by our Chaplain Andres Acuña, exists for the sole purpose of the spiritual growth of our students. Therefore, we would like to urge both staff members and students to look to them first if they need spiritual counsel or guidance.

Our Campus Ministries’ Spiritual Master Plan for this academic year is based upon words of found in Philipians 2:1-2.

"Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind."
