As part of the center’s core mission, we teach the Lebanese heritage community and the American public about the long history of Lebanese and Middle Eastern immigration to the United States.

Through these displays, the center has presented cutting edge scholarship and utilized innovative technology while sharing stories about Lebanese-Americans.
