A large number of students participated in a discussion session with Qatar University (QU) President Dr Hassan Al Derham at the annual “Meet The President” event which was yesterday organized by the President’s Office at QU Ibn Khaldoon Hall. 

The event aimed to engage dialogue with students to discuss matters of concern and interest, and to encourage their participation in university affairs. It was also attended by QU VPs, college deans, heads of departments and programs, faculty and staff. In his opening remarks, Dr Al Derham noted the importance of this annual gathering which aims to enhance the spirit of communication between students and the university. He said: “QU continues to create an exciting and inspiring environment that encourages students’ participation in the learning experience, and in which they can express their views on a wide range of issues related to academic affairs and student services.”

During the event, students asked questions, discussed concerns and commented on a wide range of topics including academic programs and their alignment with market needs, admission and reinstatement policies, parking facilities, cafeteria food and prices, the establishment of a health clinic at the male building, and the provision of emergency vehicles at the university, among many others.
