The university’s annual Media and Digital Literacy Academy in Beirut (MDLAB) gained major support this year from the Embassy of Norway to Lebanon. This first-time donor to the Lebanese American University (LAU) enabled MDLAB to run for its fifth consecutive year and funded a majority of the program’s expenses. Most importantly, the support allowed 75 regional and international participants to come together for specialized workshops, trainings, and lectures on important topics surrounding media literacy, including the academy’s theme of countering violent extremism and radicalization.
