He is the best president for AUIS, BUT the main problem with him is that no one is allowed to see him.

I can tell from the article that he is a smart person,and he has more experience, but I do not know why he looks the president of the United States, not the president of AUI-S, especially when we want to meet him, and he has only a meeting conference with students once in a month for only thirty minutes which is not enough to lesson to our issues.

He seems to be very friendly with students and faculty; however, I don't see him that mush with the students in campus. The high-quality presidents usually walk around and talk to their people or i should here say students, so they can understand the students issues and problems. There are a lot of flatterers that can be everywhere with every people who have a little or a lot of responsibility. They just tell what is the best for them. I really don't know about him that much. I hope he talk and listen to us not flatterers.

I see a lot of teachers that should not even teach in Iraqi schools at AUIS. why don't you write about them or evaluate them. I think also you should publish them in facebook.com because it's much easier to be seen bye students.
Write about that teacher that students can't blame them or complain them because they would take their grades off.
be brave men

It seems that the president is a superman with all these certificates that he holds, but I think that he looks more like an introverted superman that doesn't look after his people, I mean students, of course, as he is supposed to.

He is always smiling and saying hello to us but never more than this for me. His credits and experiences are good for AUIS. In addition, he always looks very professional without too formal. All the important people in our university must wear clothes like this. Finally, I wish he will speak more with us and come to more events for sports, lectures, graduations, and so on.

He is too famous; that is probably why I have just seen him 3 times in my life. I wish I could see him alot. Then I could know him better.

Look AUIS payroll, his monthly salary is $26,000 ( makes more than Obama. During his power, AUIS is completely controlled by PUK politicians. His favorite employee (R) gave a contract to her brother for 250,000 ( for producing a five minute video on AUIS. He himself wrote a re-admission letter to an Arab student who was dismissed at AUIS, and being re-admitted. Ahmed Ismail ( Kurdish business man ) donated $900,000 to AUIS for sponsoring poor Kurdish students? What happened to this money? Who know how it had been used?

I do not want to lose my job! So I do not put down my name:
1- His monthly salary is $26,000 plus other family benefits ( makes more than Obama)
2- People were dismissed for political reasons but he chose silence
3- A staff under his supervision was engaged in corruption he he has not taken action ( gave a contract to her brother and appoint another relative who has not been seen at AUIS so far)
4- Re-admitted a student ( personally wrote re-admission letter for him) who was failed twice.And the letter was sent to the student's house.
5- Ahmed Ismail donation in the amount of $900,000 has been wasted or used for paying for the rich students. He donated this money to AUIS to be spent for poor Kurdish students.

with benefits ( travel expenses, fanciest flat in Suli) he makes more than Obama. What he did for AUIS? bought engineering program ( nobody knows what is general engineering) for $25 million and top-school software for another $25. All this money comes from Kurdish budget. AUIS is one of the most corrupted school in Iraq. They accepted students ( son and daughters of PUK politicians) they never finished high schools ( have names). They misuse donations of Mr. Ahmed Ismail and Mr. Faruk Mustafa. They use their money for sponsoring rich people who have political connections to PUK. They brought someone from the wrestling ring to the office of admissions! He just telling jokes to students. The biggest part of Kurdish budget had been stolen looted for this school. Recently, AUIS Board Member dropped out his son from the school.
