The Daoud Family Lectureship in Middle Eastern
Studies was created by the late Detroit
businessman Tarik S. Daoud and his family to
promote a better understanding of Middle
Eastern history, peoples, and cultures, and of
the crucial role the Middle East plays in
today’s world. A native of Iraq, Daoud had
long been an active leader in the Detroit
business community, was a founding member of
the American Arab Chamber of Commerce and was
a previous recipient of the Ellis Island Medal
of Honor and the Detroit News’s Michiganian of
the Year award.
