Qatar is Booming: H.E. Sheikha Hind Meets Senior University Officials and Education Innovators on US Visit
Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, Vice Chairperson and CEO of Qatar Foundation (QF), and Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), met senior officials from QF’s partner universities during a recent five-day visit to the United States. The visit, which took place last week, served as an opportunity to strengthen international ties in the field of education to help continue building a diversified and sustainable economy in Qatar.
The tour included meetings with Cornell University, Texas A&M University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Northwestern University, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown University, HEC Paris, and University College London (UCL). Commenting on the visit, Her Excellency Sheikha Hind said: “At Qatar Foundation everything starts with education, it’s how we began. We’re committed to the concept of lifelong learning, and to providing an ecosystem where education can impact the life of every person.” In 2008, QF celebrated its first convocation, and in 2016, its cohort of graduates included 650 students, with a large number of alumni now pursuing rewarding careers and contributing to Qatar’s sustainable development.
