Last week, FXUA Faculty and Staff actively participated in a 90-minute workshop hosted by the Curriculum Development and Instructional Design Department, focusing on effective assessments for student learning. The workshop introduced the assessment cycle, emphasizing how its four phases—teach, measure, reflect, plan, and improve—aid students in monitoring their progress and achieving learning goals. The participants were engaged in practical exercises on designing effective assessments and explored examples of both summative and formative assessments. Additionally, the workshop provided insights into using effective assessment tools within Canvas, FXUA’s learning management system.

We take pride in our educators' continuous learning to provide the best practices for our students!

: Meet Rasha Taha Al Hawamdeh, a Business Administration major at FXUA. Here’s her story of why she chose FXUA:

Being an international student at FXUA for the second year elevated my educational, intellectual skills, and standards. The unique small setting and professional team enhanced our leadership skills and helped us to adapt a scientific process in critical thinking and problem-solving strategies. The well-designed courses created competent and challenging classes that flavored the learning process. I believe the diverse and intimate setting lessened the homesickness feeling of being far away from our loved ones. FXUA spares no effort to remove all obstacles to prepare students for local and international markets armed with universal technical standards.

We couldn’t be proud of our FXUA Tigers! Thank you, Rasha for sharing with us! 🐯

A note from FXUA's President, Dr. Alwani:

A few months ago, Fairfax University of America (FXUA) was presented with a challenge, our accreditor, Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), which has accredited our institution since 2008, lost its recognition from the U.S. Department of Education in August 2022. As a result, we are obtaining new accreditation with a new accrediting body. In the meantime, FXUA is still accredited and has provisional approval to participate in the Title IV program from the U.S. Department of Education until February 2024. We plan to achieve new accreditation by February 2024 and will not accept new students in the interim.

While unexpected, this challenge came as an incredible opportunity. It allowed our institution to fast-track a dream of ours from the very beginning - creating an online curriculum and providing hybrid options to both our domestic and international students.

From its inception, FXUA has aspired to be an institution that prepares students for today's workforce. We set out to redefine higher education by creating programs that allow our students to choose the design and direction of their studies. Our goal was simple, to create a curriculum that could keep pace with the latest developments both within and outside the classroom.

On the heels of the COVID pandemic and as we all gradually redefine our new normal, now more than ever, students are looking for flexibility and options. And I'm proud to share that this year, we officially rolled out our first online classes, and we are working diligently behind the scenes to prepare for future accreditation and ensure that we can continue to deliver on our promise - providing our students with a custom student-centered learning experience needed to prepare for today's workforce.

Hello FXUA Tigers! My name is Jacqueline Mejia (I go by Jackie on campus!), and for today's , I wanted to share a bit about my Hispanic background and my journey to FXUA.

My family is from , a small country in Central America whose landscape is spotted with trees, beaches, mountains, and an incredible volcano, San Miguel, that you can see upon your descent into the airport.

The colorful streets of El Salvador are lined with the aroma of peanuts, fresh fruits, coconuts - and of course, pupusas, the traditional food of El Salvador. El Salvadorans are friendly and hospitable, and I couldn't be more proud of my roots and the rich culture that I grew up with. 

I learned about FXUA while working alongside my mom when one of her clients was inquiring about my academic future and what I wanted to major in. When I told her my heart was set on business administration, she told me about a school centered around business and computer systems programs offering scholarships for business majors.

As she handed me the contact information, I remember being incredibly excited at the prospect of lining up the next steps in my academic career. When I talked to the admissions officer, he told me about FXUA's programs and missions, and I immediately knew that this was the right place to obtain my degree - the rest is history.

Today, I still feel the same way I felt when I was first introduced to FXUA - my professors have been incredibly supportive, and it's unlike any other academic experience. I'm so proud of my decision and happy to be a part of the Tiger family! 🐯

Meet Abd Almoin Al Barak, the head chef at 's !

If you're a bistro regular, you may know him as Abu Yaman, or Yaman's dad. Abd Almoin and his family are Syrian who came to the United States in 2016, living first in North Carolina before coming to Virginia for work.

Abd Almoin worked at a restaurant, that he owned and ran for a year before the pandemic changed everything. After , Abd Almoin and his family transitioned to a catering business run out of their home and slowly they built their customer base to over 100 regulars.

One of those customers was our very own Dr. Ahmad Alwani, the president of who learned about his story and contacted him with an opportunity to join the Global Bistro as head chef -- and the rest is history.

The Global Bistro offers a variety of dishes from the Middle East, with an extra focus on cuisine native to his homeland of Syria. Chef Abd Almoin’s specialties include many of the Levant's traditional main entrees, surrounded by several smaller dishes or appetizers, like his popular tabbouleh salad and fattoush salad. In addition, Abd Almoin dedicates a significant portion of the menu to his most popular dish, chicken and beef shawarma. Shawarma, is a Levantine dish consisting of meat cut into thin slices, stacked in a cone-like shape, and roasted on a slowly-turning vertical rotisserie or spit. Global Bistro has become known for its shawarma and many throughout Northern Virginia, and beyond, come for a taste.

Chef Abd Almoin, embodies so many of the values we hold dear at FXUA and if you haven't taken a moment to try the Global Bistro, we couldn't recommend it more. Chef Abd Almoin shared with us that he's recently added Mansaf, a lamb dish with yogurt sauce, that he's incredibly proud of and so if you need us - we'll be at the bistro!
