The Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of Qatar Foundation for Education Science and Community Development, has appointed Maryam Hamad al-Mannai as its new vice president for Students Affairs.
Previously, al-Mannai held senior positions at the Ministry of Education and Texas A&M University at Qatar (Tamuq).
“By providing students with an enriching academic and cultural environment, in addition to a multitude of opportunities to build their leadership skills, HBKU’s Student Affairs team aims to inspire students to be our effective and ambitious ambassadors,” al-Mannai said.
“I believe our students share an objective to work towards Qatar National Vision 2030, and it is a privilege to be able to help prepare them for their professional lives as they navigate how best to use their knowledge and skills to contribute to society,” she added.
Throughout her career, al-Mannai has shown a deep commitment to providing students with holistic education focused on the academic achievement, as well as personal growth and development.
She will be primarily responsible for student life, career development and community outreach, taking an active role in ensuring that the community is fully aware of the university’s key initiatives and academic programmes.
Al-Mannai previously developed the Community Relations Programme at Tamuq and at HBKU she plans to build similar new programming to accommodate the needs of the rapidly expanding student body.
She had been awarded the Distinguished Achievement Award in Student Relations by Texas A&M University in 2010 for her efforts in helping students fulfil their true potential.
