Dr. Emmanuel Gergis, Ph.D.

The Agora, a Greek word meaning “assembly of the people,” was a central space in ancient cities like Alexandria and Athens where individuals gathered to exchange ideas and connect. The Agora of Alexandria, located near the famous library, attracted philosophers, teachers, and students seeking to advance knowledge and make a positive impact on society. In the present day, Agora University aims to serve as a platform for holistic education and academic excellence, preparing students to use their skills to transform and serve their communities. The university seeks to restore academic authenticity and address the shortcomings of modern society. The invitation is extended to join the Agora family, which has already produced influential leaders who are making a difference in their communities.
