  • Parenting Styles of Lebanese Mothers and Fathers: Links to Adolescent Mental Health, Achievement, and Parent-Adolescent Relationship Quality

    The association of the parenting styles of Lebanese mothers and fathers to the mental health and achievement of their adolescent and young adult children will be examined in a pioneering study by MUBS and San Jose State University. The research will address important gaps in knowledge in socialization research regarding the parenting patterns that exist in non-European cultures and the developmental outcomes that are associated with such parenting patterns.

  • The International Arab Conference on Quality Assurance in Higher Education (IACQA 2015

    Mr. Hadi Matar and Ms. Razane Diab have formulated a questionnaire as a tool to improve the overall student learning and instructor teaching experiences. This tool aids in the development of organizational benchmarks of quality indicators, which can then strategically be measured over time for quality assurance and accreditation purposes. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, best-practice data will be collected on a regular basis, and communicated collaboratively. A research paper relating the questionnaire to quality assurance in higher education has been also written by Mr. Hadi and Ms. Razane, and further accepted at the IACQA. Ms. Diab participated in the IACQA, which took place on March 3-5, 2015 at the University of Sharjah, Emirates. Ms. Diab presented the research paper, "Contemporary Experience in Academic Education: Questionnaire" at the IACQA.

  • Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for the Selective Extraction of Micropolluant in the Aqueous Environment.

    Functionalization of crosslinked porous polymer leads to materials with numerous applications in many areas including ion exchangers, chromatographic packings, polymersupported catalysts, solid-phase extraction (SPE) adsorbents. SPE is a well-known and efficient method for sample treatment allowing preconcentration and interferents elimination (Figure 1). SPE using functional materials offers many advantages for ions or molecules separation since it simplifies the separation process and reduces the disposal costs as well as the solvent use and exposure. The preparation of functional porous resins containing various organic ligands as active groups is a good alternative. The aim of my research is to design functional materials able to extract ions, or molecules, for an application in solid-phase extraction.
